The Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling about 7,000 youth hooded sweatshirts made by Propac Distributing Corp.
Although no injuries have been reported, the sweatshirts have a drawstring through the hood that can pose a strangulation hazard to children.
This recall involves youth zipper and pullover hooded sweatshirts with drawstrings. The sweatshirts were sold in black, navy and grey. The Proclub brand sweatshirts have RN number 100418 printed on a tag inside the collar.
They were sold at retail stores in Los Angeles and Las Vegas from November 2008 through December 2008 for about $19.
Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings from the sweatshirts to eliminate the hazard, or return the garments with drawstrings to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers also can return the sweatshirts to Propac Distributing for a full refund.
