  • Deezo Hot Pink sweatshirt #12809
  • Deezo White Sweatshirt #12505
  • Deezo Blue Sweatshirt #12502
  • Deezo Gray Sweatshirt #12506
Name of Product:
Deezo boys and girls zip-up hoodies
Hazard:
The sweatshirts and jackets have drawstrings through the hood which pose a strangulation hazard to young 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.
