Recall Details Report an Incident Involving this Product
The sweaters have a drawstring around the neck that poses a strangulation hazard to children if the drawstring gets entangled or caught on playground slides, school bus doors or other moving objects.
These animal-themed, hooded children's sweaters are 100 percent wool when produced in Nepal and 50 percent wool and 50 percent acrylic when produced in Bangladesh. The sweaters have a tag sewn on the left seam several inches above the hem with the company name and the place of origin. The company name is also located on a patch on the left sleeve at the cuff and on a patch in the collar.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled sweater away from kids and remove the drawstring, or return the sweater to Kyber Outerwear for a full credit for Kyber products.
Independent children's stores nationwide and online from January 2010 through December 2013 for between $10 and $50.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical or mechanical hazard. CPSC's work to help ensure the safety of consumer products - such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters and household chemicals -– contributed to a decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 40 years.
Federal law bars any person from selling products subject to a publicly-announced voluntary recall by a manufacturer or a mandatory recall ordered by the Commission.
