Children’s hooded jackets and pullover sweatshirts with drawstrings recalled by Hard Tail due to strangulation hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling Hard Tail girls’ hooded jackets and pullover sweatshirts. The jackets and pullovers have a drawstring through the hood or waist which can pose a strangulation hazard to children.

The recalled hooded jackets and pullover sweatshirts have style numbers and RN number 107435 included on the care label found sewn inside on the lower left seam.

About 130 hooded jackets and pullover sweatshirts were sold at Nordstrom’s, Gingerbread Kids, Beautiful Kids, Tabeez, EZ Fashion, Village Kids, In Motion, Pitti Bimi, Red Apple and Kidding Around stores nationwide from July 2007 through September 2008 for about $60 to $85 US.

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 Hard Tail for a refund.
