Trendset Originals LLC, of New York, New York, has issued a recall for about 2,400 of the Shampoo brand and an unknown number of the Marci & Me brand girls’ hooded jackets. The hooded jackets have a drawstring through the hood that can pose a strangulation hazard to children. The sweater jackets have a drawstring through the waist that can pose an entanglement hazard to children. In February 1996, CPSC issued guidelines (which were incorporated into an industry voluntary standard in 1997) to help prevent children from strangling or getting entangled on the neck and waist drawstrings in upper garments, such as jackets and sweatshirts. This recall involves two styles of girls’ jackets. The Shampoo brand jackets are denim with a pink hood and sleeves, and were sold in sizes 5/6, 7/8, 10/12 and 14/16. The Marci & Me brand sweater jackets are black or tan and were sold in sizes 7/8, 10/12 and 14/16. The tag at the neck reads “Shampoo” or “Marci & Me.”
The hooded jackets were sold by Burlington Coat Factory stores nationwide from September 2007 through September 2009 for between $11 and $13. Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings from the jackets to eliminate the hazard. Consumers can also return the jackets to any Burlington Coat Factory store for a full refund.
