Jun '09
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: Epic Threads and Greendog Hooded Sweatshirts

Units: About 33,000

Importer: Macy's Merchandising Group Inc., of New York, N.Y.

Hazard: The sweatshirts have a drawstring sewn at the base of 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 drawstrings in upper garments, such as jackets or sweatshirts.

Incidents/Injuries: No injuries reported.

Description: This recall includes boys and girls Epic Threads sweatshirts and girls Greendog sweaters with nonfunctional ties in numerous styles. The Epic Threads sweatshirts are white, gray, maroon, yellow, blue, green, and black, with images on the front and/or back. The girls Greendog sweaters are brown and gray. Only sizes small and medium are subject to the recall.

Sold at: Macy's stores nationwide from July 2008 through March 2009.

Manufactured in: India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, and Taiwan

Remedy: Consumers should immediately remove the ties from the sweatshirts to eliminate the hazard, or return the garment to any Macy's for a full refund.
