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.

Name of Product: Children's fleece hooded zip-up jackets with neck drawstrings

Incidents/Injuries: None reported.

Description: The recalled hooded zip-up sweatshirts are for Boys 8-20 and were made under the "Burnside" brand. The sweatshirts came in boys' sizes small, medium, large and X-large and have various designs on the front. The recalled models have "RN no. 39209" printed on the tag.

Sold at: Bon-Ton, Bergner's, Boston Store, Carson Pirie Scott, Elder-Beerman, Herberger's and Younkers stores nationwide and Parisian stores in the Detroit area from August 2007 through October 2007.

Manufactured in: Bangladesh, India and Pakistan

Remedy: Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings from the sweatshirts to eliminate the hazard or return the garment for a refund.
