Ram’s Imports Recalls Girls’ Pink Leopard Jackets Due to Strangulation Hazard; Sold Exclusively at Burlington Coat Factory

  • Front of Hooded Jacket
Name of Product:
IQ Girls' Hooded Pink Leopard Jackets
Hazard:
The jackets have a drawstring through the hood which can pose 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.
