Flowers By Zoe, Melville, N.Y., has recalled about 122 of its girls hoodies and jackets. The hoodies and jackets have drawstrings around the neck area that pose 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 and/or 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 girls zippered striped hoodies and tie dye jackets.
The lightweight hoodie has multi-colored stripes (yellow, white, orange and pink). It has a drawstring hood, zip-up front and pockets on both sides. It is made from 100 percent Rayon and was sold in sizes S (7, 8), M (10) and L (12). A label sewn into the garment’s neck seam reads “Flowers By Zoe” and a label sewn into the side seam reads style #SRH125MS. The tie-dye jacket has tie-dye-effect dark blue, teal, orange, pink and lime green horizontal stripes. It has a drawstring hood, zip up front and pockets on both sides. It is made from 100 percent Rayon and was sold in sizes S (7, 8), M (10) and L (12). A label sewn into the garment’s neck seam reads “Flowers By Zoe” and another label in the side seam reads style #NRH125TA.
The jackets were sold at several children’s boutique specialty retailers; such as LaBella Flora in Auburn IN; Kids Only in Los Angeles, Calif.; Kids Biz, Dallas, Texas; and Polkadot Pony in Jackson, Miss., and other on-line children’s stores; such as Everything But the Princess, from February 2015 through May 2015 for about $45. Consumers should immediately take the hoodies and jackets away from children and remove the drawstring to eliminate the hazard. Consumers can return the hoodies to the place of purchase for a full refund. Contact Flowers By Zoe toll-free at 844-236-7350 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
