Silla America Inc. is recalling about 180 children's parka jackets with drawstrings because they pose a strangulation hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced.
The jacket was sold at Dollar Days International stores and online from December 2005 through November 2006 for between $7.50 and $10 US.
CPSC guidelines suggest that children's clothing should not be sold with drawstrings around the neck.
No injuries have been reported to the company.
Consumers should immediately remove the drawstring from the jacket and contact the company for a refund.
