About 720 SX and QH Boys’ Zip-front Hooded Jackets have been recalled by Bonded Apparel Inc., of Los Angeles, Calif. The jackets have a drawstring through the hood which poses a strangulation hazard to children. In February 1996, CPSC issued guidelines about drawstrings in children’s upper outerwear. In 1997, those guidelines were incorporated into a voluntary standard. Then, in July 2011, based on the guidelines and voluntary standard, CPSC issued a federal regulation. CPSC’s actions demonstrate a commitment to help prevent children from strangling or getting entangled on neck and waist drawstrings in upper outerwear, such as jackets and sweatshirts.
This recall involves boys’ long-sleeved zip-front hooded jackets. The jackets were sold in three colors: army green, aqua green and black and have a fake fur lining. The jackets have one of four designs: the number “2” or the letter “B” embroidered on the left front chest; or the word “ROCK” or “AB Sportwear” embroidered across the chest. The jackets were sold in sizes 4-7 or S, M, and L. Either “SX” or “QH” appears on the label stitched at the neck. The jackets have model numbers 1006, 1029, 1058 and 1061; however, the model number only appears on the original hang tag and not on the product.
The jackets were sold exclusively at dd’s Discounts stores nationwide from August 2011 through December 2011 for about $8. Consumers should immediately take the recalled jacket from their child and remove the drawstring or contact Bonded Apparel for instructions on returning the product for a full refund. For additional information, contact Bonded Apparel toll-free at (888) 974-1555 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. PT Monday through Friday.
