Wearever Girl’s Hooded Jacket Sets Recalled by David’s Place Due to Strangulation Hazard; Sold Exclusively at Burlington Coat Factory

Date: 
December 4, 2013
Brand: 
David’s Place Off Price Clothing
Sold At: 

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

Problem:

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.

Product Numbers Recalled: 
About 60
If You Own This Product: 

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.
