About 7,000 youth hooded sweatshirts have been recalled by distributor Propac Distributing Corp., of Gardena, California. The sweatshirts 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 or sweatshirts. This recall involves youth zipper and pullover hooded sweatshirts with drawstrings. The sweatshirts were sold in black, navy and grey. The Proclub brand sweatshirts have RN number 100418 printed on a tag inside the collar. The sweatshirts were sold at retail stores in Los Angeles, Calif. and Las Vegas, Nevada from November 2008 through December 2008 for about $19.
Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings from the sweatshirts to eliminate the hazard, or return the garment with drawstring to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers also can return the sweatshirts to Propac Distributing for a full refund.
