Jerry Leigh of California has recalled about 1,200 Harajuku Lovers hooded jackets. The jackets have a drawstring through the hood which can pose a strangulation hazard.
This recall involves the Harajuku Lovers Hooded Jackets with the RSL Hoodie and Lovers Leopard styles. The RSL Hoodie style has numerous pictures of girls riding motor scooters and the words "ready steady love" printed on it. The Lovers Leopard style has a leopard design in grey and black.
