The hooded sweatshirts have drawstrings around the neck area that pose a strangulation or an entanglement hazard to young children. In February 1996, 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.
Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings from the hooded sweatshirts to eliminate the hazard or return the garment to Browning for a full refund.
