The recalled jackets have a drawstring in the hood and a drawsting in the waist area that can become entangled or caught on playground slides, hand rails, school bus doors or other moving objects, posing a strangulation and/or an entrapment hazard to children.
This recall involves Swix branded winter jackets with a drawstring in the hood and a drawstring in the waist. They were sold under the name Focus Down Jacket Jr., item number 13162. The jackets were sold in three colors; black, navy and red. They were sold in four European format junior sizes; 128 (8-10yrs), 140 (10-12yrs), 152 (12-14yrs) and 164 (14-16yrs).
