About 350 Trail Crest boys and girls hooded sweatshirts and jackets have been recalled by Trail Crest of Brooklyn, N.Y. The hoodies and jackets have drawstrings through the hood or neck which pose a strangulation hazard to young children. In February 1996, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (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 Trail Crest brand boys and girls hooded sweatshirts sold in sizes x-small, small and medium. They have a camouflage pattern on shoulders and arms, with drawstrings in the hood and zippers at the neck. They come in birch and camouflage, pink and camouflage, and purple and camouflage. There is a tag sewn on the outside of the jacket left sleeve with style number 29121. There is an additional Trail Crest tag in the neckline.
The sweatshirts and jackets were sold at Zulily.com and other stores nationwide from November 2012 to February 2013 for about $15. Consumers should immediately take the garments away from children. Consumers can remove the drawstrings to eliminate the hazard or return the garments to Trail Crest for a full refund. Contact Trail Crest for a return address label and instructions for returning the garment. Contact Trail Crest at 800-965-6550 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday. Consumers can also email the company at email@example.com. Photos available at http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/2014/Trail-Crest-Recalls-Childrens-Hooded-Sweatshirts/
