About 7,400 hooded sweatshirts and jackets are being pulled because strings threaded through the hoods of the garments pose a strangulation danger to children, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday.
No related injuries have been reported.
The recall affects the youth hooded sweatshirts and bomber jackets marked with the item numbers 11037Y-39 and 1113Y-39.
The garments, which were manufactured in China, were sold from July 2007 through December 2007 for between $20 and $30 US.
Consumers should remove the drawstrings or return the products to the place of purchase for a refund.
