Browning Recalls Junior Hoodie Due to Strangulation and Entrapment Hazard; Sold Exclusively at Academy Sports+Outdoors

Date: 
December 19, 2013
Brand: 
Browning
Sold At: 

Dive equipment stores nationwide from July 2009 through May 2013 for between $70 and $90. 

Problem:

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.

Product Numbers Recalled: 
About 4,300
If You Own This Product: 

Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings from the hooded sweatshirts to eliminate the hazard or return the garment to Browning for a full refund.
