Academy Sports + Outdoors Recalls Girls BCG Hooded Windsuits Due to Strangulation Hazard

  • Black and Pink
  • Blue and Gray
  • Purple and Light Purple
Name of Product:
Girls BCG Hooded Windsuits
Hazard:
The hooded windsuits have drawstrings in the hood around the neck area that 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.
