Save children from clothing drawstrings mess

11
Aug '06
Summer is quickly coming to an end and parents and children nationwide are preparing for another school year. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is reminding parents to take precautions to keep children safe when they head back to school.

"As you prepare to send your child back to school, parents should arm themselves with important safety tips that can help keep your child in the classroom and out of a hospital emergency room," said CPSC Acting Chairman Nancy Nord.

Drawstrings on Children's Clothing
One hazard to watch for is drawstrings on children's clothing. This hidden hazard can lead to deaths and injuries because drawstrings can catch on such items as playground equipment.

Over the past 20 years, CPSC received reports of 23 deaths and 64 non-fatal incidents involving the entanglement of children's clothing drawstrings.

U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recommends that parents or caregivers only buy upper outerwear without hood and neck drawstrings.

If you find children's clothing with drawstrings in your home, completely remove the hood and neck drawstrings from all children's upper outerwear, including jackets and sweatshirts, size 2T through size 12.
