Umbro Boys' jackets with drawstrings recalled

09
Mar '12
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

Name of Product: Umbro Boys' outerwear jackets

Units: About 240

Manufacturer: Hong Kong Genexy Group Co. Ltd., of Hong Kong

Distributor: Umbro USA, of Beaverton, Ore.

Hazard: The boys' jacket has a retractable elastic drawstring at the waist with a toggle that could become snagged or caught in small spaces or doorways, which poses an entrapment hazard to children. In February 1996, CPSC issued guidelines (pdf) about drawstrings in children's upper outerwear. In 1997, those guidelines were incorporated into a voluntary standard. Then in July 2011, based on the guidelines and voluntary standard, CPSC issued a federal regulation. CPSC's actions demonstrate a commitment to help prevent children from strangling or getting entangled on neck and waist drawstrings in upper outerwear, such as jackets and sweatshirts.

Incidents/Injuries: None reported

Description: This recall involves boys' nylon jackets sold in sizes medium to extra large that can fit children through size 14. "Umbro" is printed on the front upper right side of the jackets. The bottom of the jacket has a drawstring with toggles. The jackets were sold in five color combinations: black, black/royal, black/Tabasco, black/cedar, and navy.

Sold at: Ross Stores nationwide from April 2011 through January 2012 for about $8.

Manufactured in: China

Remedy: Consumers should immediately remove the drawstring and return the jacket to Umbro for a full refund.
