Health Canada is warning consumers about a hooded jacket sold by Foursquare Outerwear, of Irvine, Calif.
The Foursquare labelled garment, which comes in a variety of sizes and colours, has a drawstring through the hooded part of the jacket that poses a strangulation threat for users.
The government agency says consumers should immediately pull the string out of the garment and take the jacket back to the place of purchase for a refund.
There were 478 jackets sold in various outlets across Canada between June 2008 and November the same year.
Health Canada says it is not aware of any injuries from the hoodie.
