About 12,000 Jewel brand girls' sweatshirts are being recalled because a drawstring threaded through the hood poses a strangulation hazard to young children.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Friday the recall applies to sweatshirts sold in the following styles:
- Big Heart zip-up long-sleeve hoodie, #J2173k/sk.
- Small Stars long-sleeve hoodie, style #J2174k/sk.
No associated injuries or incidents have been reported. The sweatshirts were manufactured in India.
The sweatshirts were sold in U.S. stores from August 2007 through November 2007 for about $10 US.
Consumers should remove the drawstring or return the sweatshirts to the retailer for a refund.
