Boy’s long sleeve hooded jackets 

[Missing text /cpscGlobals/recallsboilerplates/hazard for vi-VN]:

The recalled jackets have drawstrings with toggles inside the bottom hem and neck area, posing a strangulation 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.
