Burlington Coat Factory recalls boy's hooded sweatshirts and warm-up sets

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in co-operation with Burlington Coat Factory of Burlington, N.J., has announced a voluntary recall of boy's hooded sweatshirts with drawstrings and warm-up sets because they pose a strangulation danger to children.

Users should immediately remove the drawstrings from the sweatshirts and jackets to eliminate the hazard, or return the garment to any Burlington Coat Factory store for a refund or credit, the commission said.

The recall, which affects about 13,300 units, involves boy's hooded sweatshirt Style No. 3650-B in black, brown, charcoal, heather grey and navy; and faux suede warm-up sets Style No. B9560ST in black, brown and khaki.

Both the sweatshirts and warm-up sets have the style numbers and the name KOMAN printed on the hangtag on the centre back neck with sizes S, M, L, or XL.

The clothes were sold at Burlington Coat Factory retail stores in the United States from September 2008 through June 2009. The sweatshirts sold for about $13 US, the warm up sets for $20.

No injuries or incidents have been reported.
