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: Hooded Youth Sweatshirts and Jackets

Units: About 7,400

Manufacturer: Brents-Riordan Inc. LLC, of Shreveport, La.

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: This recall involves the Youth Hooded Sweatshirt (item no. 11037Y-39) and the Youth Insulated Bomber with Hood (item no. 1113Y-39). The item number is found in a label located underneath the care label. The sweatshirts have a camouflage design and "Photoflauge(tm)" is printed on them.

Sold at: Various retail stores nationwide from July 2007 through December 2007.

Manufactured in: China

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