Chantique’s Corp., Los Angeles, Calif., has recalled about 60 Boy’s Zipper Hooded Hoodies. The sweaters have a drawstring around the neck area which poses a strangulation hazard to children. Drawstrings can become entangled or caught on playground slides, hand rails, school bus doors or other moving objects, posing a significant strangulation or an entanglement hazard to 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 a Pure Baby Organic boy’s hoodie made of 100 percent cotton. It comes in solid gray with a red drawstring that is inside the lining of the hood that surrounds the face. They have a zipper front closure. The recalled hoodies were sold in toddler boy’s sizes 2t to boy’s size 3. There is a white label sewn into the neck line that has the name Purebaby on it. There is also a label underneath it that has the size printed on it and states Made in India. A label with style number PB1613.B12 is sewn into an inside side seam of the garment under the washing instruction label.
The shirts were sold at Children’s boutiques nationwide and other stores such as Elephant Ears, Pumpkin heads, Sprouts and on-line at www.Nordstromrack.com from January 2014 through August 2014 for about $62. Consumers should immediately take the hoodie away from children. Consumers can remove the drawstring from the garment to eliminate the hazard or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
