Kiddie Korral, Dallas, Texas, has recalled about 2,300 Pink Pony Hoodies. A drawstring through the hood of the hoodies can pose a strangulation hazard to children. Drawstrings can become entangled or caught on playground slides, hand rails, schoolbus doors or other moving objects, posing a significant strangulation and/or entanglement 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 Kiddie Korral girl’s pink hooded sweatshirts with red ponies and a drawstring through the hood. The zippered front hoodies have two front pockets, are made of 100 percent polyester and were sold in sizes 2 through 12. A label sewn into the garment’s neck seam reads “Kiddie Korral” and a label sewn into the side seam has RN#117026 and style number 327.
The hoodies are sold at Children’s boutiques, gift shops and other specialty retail stores nationwide from December 2012 through November 2014 for about $25. Consumers should immediately take the hoodies from children and remove the drawstring to eliminate the hazard. Consumers can return the hoodies to the place of purchase for a full refund.
