Dive equipment stores nationwide from July 2009 through May 2013 for between $70 and $90.
The jackets sold with the set have drawstrings through the hood which pose a strangulation hazard to young children. In February 1996, CPSC issued guidelines for 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 take the jackets away from children and remove the drawstrings to eliminate the hazard. Consumers can also contact David’s Place to obtain a return address label and instructions for returning the garment for a full refund.
