The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling Speedy children's hooded zipper jackets and hooded pullover jackets due to a strangulation hazard
The jackets have a drawstring through the hood, which can pose a strangulation hazard to children.
This recall involves Speedy children’s hooded zipper jackets and hooded pullover jackets with drawstrings. The jackets were sold in various colours (black, white, charcoal grey, heather grey, burgundy, green, royal blue, navy blue, baby blue, red, pink and brown, and in sizes S-XXL. “Speedy” can be found on a label located on the inside of the collar.
About 80,000 of the garments were sold at Sportswear and clothing retail stores in the Los Angeles area from December 2004 through December 2008 for about $10 US each.
Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings from the sweatshirts to eliminate the hazard, or return the garment to either the place of purchase or to Speedy for a full refund.
