About 6,000 Squeeze Kids Girl’s Corduroy Jackets have been recalled. The garments have a drawstring through the hood, which can pose a strangulation hazard to children. In February 1996, CPSC issued guidelines to help prevent children from strangling or getting entangled on the neck and waist drawstrings in upper garments, such as jackets and sweatshirts. No injuries have been reported. The recalled garments are brown corduroy jackets with a pink hood and pink sequins on the front pockets. “Squeeze Kids” and style number 4JZ642FK are printed on the care label sewn into the back collar area of the garment.
The sweatshirts were sold in a number of sizes for girls. They were sold at TJ Maxx retail stores nationwide during January 2007 for about $13. Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings from the sweatshirts to eliminate the hazard, or return the garments to the place where purchased or to Maran Inc. to receive a refund. For additional information, contact Maran Inc. toll-free at (866) 431-5698 or visit the firm’s Web site at www.Sqz.com.
