Dec '07
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: Jewel brand girls' hooded sweatshirts

Units: About 12,000

Distributor: Liberty Apparel Co Inc, of New York, N.Y.

Hazard: The garments have a drawstring through the hood, which can pose a strangulation hazard to children. In February 1996, CPSC issued guidelines (pdf) to help prevent children from strangling or getting entangled on the neck and waist by drawstrings in upper garments, such as jackets and sweatshirts.

Incidents/Injuries: None reported.

Description: The Jewel brand girls' zippered hoodie sweatshirts have various designs on the front, and were sold in two styles: the "Big Heart" zip-up long sleeve hoodie sweatshirts (style no. J2173k/sk) in black, light pink and purple colors, and the "Small Stars" long sleeve hoodie jacket sweatshirts (style no. J2174k/sk) in green, khaki, navy and orange colors. Both styles were sold in small, medium, large, extra-large sizes.

Sold at: Marshalls and other specialty children's clothing retailers nationwide from August 2007 through November 2007.

Manufactured in: India

Remedy: Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings to eliminate the hazard or return the sweatshirts to either the place of purchase or Liberty Apparel for a full refund.
