Jason Evans Assoc. LLC, of New York, recently announced a voluntary recall of Children’s Hooded Jackets because the drawstring can pose a strangulation hazard to children.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued guidelines (pdf) in 1996 to help prevent children from strangling or getting entangled on the neck and waist drawstrings of upper garments.
To date, the company has not received any report of injury related to the recall.
The recalled jackets have a drawstring through the hood of the garment. They were sold in boy sizes 4, 5, 6 and 7 in colors black/grey. The RN number 30842 printed in the center back neck and style number 1708 is printed on the hangtag on the center back neck.
Consumers should remove the drawstrings immediately or return them to the place of purchase or to Jason Evans Associates to receive a refund.
