09
May '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: O'Neill Pluto hooded flannel shirts

Units: About 600

Importer: La Jolla Sport USA Inc., dba O'Neill Clothing, of Irvine, Calif.

Hazard: The hooded sweatshirts have drawstrings in the neck that can pose a strangulation 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

This recall involves O'Neill Pluto brand, boy's flannel long sleeve shirts with button front, a hood and two chest pockets. Style name "Pluto Flannel" and Style No. 41204106 is printed on a label sewn inside the wearer's left side seam. "O'NEILL" is printed on a label sewn inside the back neck. The shirts were sold in dark grey with horizontal black stripes and in child sizes small, medium, large and extra large.

Sold at: East Coast Surf Products, Hansens Surfboards, Huntington Surf & Sport, Jacks Surf and Sport, Main Beach Surf & Sport, O'Neill, Riders Outlet, Sports Chalet, Valley Skate N Surf and other surfing specialty stores nationwide between September 2011 and December 2011 for about $60

Manufactured in: India

Remedy: Consumers should immediately take the recalled sweatshirt from their child and remove the drawstring from the hooded flannel shirt, to eliminate the hazard, and return the garment to the place of purchase or to the company for a full refund.
