The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled 1,200 Harajuku Lovers hooded sweatshirts, because the drawstring could strangle a child.
No incidents have been reported.
The hoodies include the RSL style, with pictures of girls riding motor scooters and the words "ready steady love" printed on them, and the Lovers Leopard, with a leopard design in grey and black. "Harajuku Lovers" is printed on a tag sawn next to the care label.
They were sold from August 2008 to January 2009 for about $75 US.
The importer, Jerry Leigh of California Inc. of Van Nuys, Calif., is offering a full refund.
The company can be reached at (877) 800-0824, ext. 122, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. PST.
