Children's sweatshirts, clothing sets and sweaters were recalled Thursday for strangulation and entrapment hazards, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.
The recall applies to the following products:
- About 72,000 boys' sweatshirts distributed by Scope Apparel sold in various sizes, colours and designs. The shirts, which have tags sewn inside the garment that read 'Whatever' and 'RN#39209,' were sold in U.S. stores from August 2007 through November 2007 for between $20 and $40 US.
- About 5,200 sweaters imported by A & R Knitwear in different styles and sizes and sold in Sears stores in the U.S. during the month of September for about $34 US.
- About 13,000 girls' knit clothing sets imported by Millennium Apparel Group and sold in U.S. Kmart stores during the month of July for about $17 US.
- About 6,100 TKS-brand children's pants with the model numbers 62240, 62254 and 62226 and sold in Sears stores from July through August 2007 for about $16 US.
Consumers can remove the drawstrings threaded through the hood or waist to remove strangulation and entrapment dangers. Scope Apparel is also offering consumers who return the garment a refund.
No injuries have been reported.
