Ross Stores nationwide from April 2011 through January 2012 for about $8.
The boys' jacket has a retractable elastic drawstring at the waist with a toggle that could become snagged or caught in small spaces or doorways, which poses an entrapment hazard to children. In February 1996, CPSC issued guidelines (pdf) 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 drawstring and return the jacket to Umbro for a full refund.
