Life is good® Children's Sweatshirts Recalled by RedEnvelope; Garments Have Drawstrings, Pose Strangulation Hazard

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

Name of product: Life is good® Children's Sweatshirts

Units: About 1,200

Importer: Independent Trading Co. of San Clemente, California.

Hazard: The garments have a drawstring through the hood, posing a strangulation hazard to children. In February 1996, CPSC issued guidelines to help prevent children from strangling or getting entangled on the neck and waist by drawstrings in upper garments, such as jackets and sweatshirts.

Sold at: www.RedEnvelope.com from March 2006 through March 2007 for about $35.

Manufactured in: China

Remedy: Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings from the sweatshirts to eliminate the hazard. Consumers can get information about returning the sweatshirts for a full refund by contacting RedEnvelope Inc.
