About 756 IQ Girls’ Hooded Pink Leopard Jackets have been recalled by Ram’s Imports Inc. of New York, N.Y. The jackets have a drawstring through the hood which can pose a strangulation hazard to children. In February 1996, The U.S. 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 girls pink hooded jackets. The jacket is 97 percent cotton 3 percent spandex. The jackets have pink and black leopard print drawstrings and pink and black leopard print on the sides of the jacket. “IQ girls” is printed on the sewn-in label located on the back of the neck. The model number included in the recall is 86557 and can be found printed on a sewn in label in the back of the neck. This recall involves jacket sizes girls 4 through 12.
The jackets were sold exclusively at Burlington Coat Factory stores nationwide October 2010 through August 2013 for about $15. Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings from the garment to eliminate the hazard or return the garment to Ram’s Imports Inc. for a full refund.
