Children’s Full Zip Hooded Sweatshirts with Drawstrings Recalled for Strangulation Hazard By Bon-Ton
Name of Product:
Children’s fleece hooded zip-up jackets with neck drawstrings
The Bon-Ton Department Stores Inc., of York, Pa.
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.
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 # 39209” printed on the tag.
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 for between $18 and $30.
Bangladesh, India and Pakistan
Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings from the sweatshirts to eliminate the hazard or return the garment for a refund.
