California-based Empress Arts Ltd. is recalling about 130 children's sweaters because the hoods are threaded with drawstrings that present choking hazards to children, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Tuesday.
No related injuries have been reported.
The knit sweaters were sold under the brand name Empress Arts in children's stores in the U.S. from August 2006 through April 2008 for between $28 and $45 US.
The sweaters were made in China.
Consumers should remove the drawstrings from the sweaters.
