About 200 Little Willy’s Hooded Sweatshirts have been recalled by Little Willy’s of New York, N.Y. The hoodies 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. This recall involves Little Willy’s brand children’s hooded sweatshirts sold in sizes XS (2 years), S (3 years), M (4-5 years), L (6-7 years), XL (8-9 years) and XXL (10 years). The cotton fleece sweatshirts were sold in two color patterns: dark grey with light grey stripes and a red hood, and purple with navy blue stripes and a green hood. The sweatshirt has an elbow patch on the right arm and the Little Willy logo on the front.
The sweatshirts were sold online at Zullily.com and Gilt.com from January 2012 to May 2012 for about $20. Consumers should immediately take the garments away from children. Consumers can remove the drawstrings to eliminate the hazard or return the garments to Little Willy’s to have the drawstring removed. Contact Little Willy’s collect at 212-680-0107 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. ET Tuesday through Saturday, or online at www.littlewillys.com. In addition, consumers can email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Photos available at: http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/2014/Little-Willys-Recalls-Hooded-Sweatshirts/
