Runway Global Recalls Sugarfly Girls’ Coats; Waist Drawstring Poses Entanglement Hazard

Date: 
April 24, 2014
Brand: 
Runway Global
Sold At: 

Nordstrom Rack nationwide from October 2010 through November 2010 and on-line at www.Zulily.com from September 2013 through November 2013 for about $40.

Problem:

The coats have a drawstring tie sewn into the side seam at the waist that could become snagged or caught in small spaces or vehicle doors, posing significant entanglement hazard to 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.
