Seattle Cotton Works LLC of Bellevue, Wash., has recalled about 40,000 hooded sweatshirts because the drawstring poses a strangulation hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says.
No injuries have been reported from the garments, which have full-length zippers and drawstrings along the neck line. They are sold under the Seattle Cotton Works brand in six different designs.
They were sold at Kohl's Department Stores from January 2009 through February 2009 for about $17 US.
Consumers should remove the drawstrings from the sweatshirts or call the manufacturer to arrange for a full refund.
The company can be reached at (800) 533-8922 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
