Browning Recalls Junior Hoodie Due to Strangulation and Entrapment Hazard

  • Camouflage Hooded Junior Sweatshirt with embroidered yellow Buckmark
Name of Product:
Browning Youth Buckmark Junior Hoodie Sweatshirts
Hazard:
The hooded sweatshirts have drawstrings around the neck area that pose a strangulation or an entanglement 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.
