Yet another company is recalling <"https://www.yourlawyer.com/practice_areas/product_liability">children’s hooded sweatshirts that pose a strangulation hazard.

This recall involves 18,300 Boys Fleece & Flannel Zip Hooded Sweatshirts with Drawstrings sold by Burlington Coat Factory from September 2006 through October 2009 for about $12 to $20. The sweatshirts can be identified by labels sewn into the neck seam with the brand name Bay Trading and RN# 30842. They were available in sizes 4 – 18.

According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), these sweatshirts have a drawstring through the hood which can pose a strangulation hazard to children. 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 Jason Evans for a full refund.

In February 1996, the CPSC issued guidelines to help prevent children from strangling or becoming entangled on the neck and waist by drawstrings in upper garments, such as jackets and sweatshirts. In 1997, industry adopted a voluntary standard for drawstrings that incorporated the CPSC guidelines. In May 2006, the CPSC’s Office of Compliance issued an announcement that such outerwear with drawstrings at the hood or neck would be regarded as both defective and a substantial risk of injury to young children.

Unfortunately, the CPSC guidelines are routinely ignored by the clothing industry, and that attitude has had deadly consequences for some children. From January 1985 through January 1999, the CPSC received reports of 22 deaths and 48 non-fatal entanglement incidents involving drawstrings on children’s clothing.

My experience with Parker Waichman has been a positive one for the most part. Having dealt with many individuals in almost 3 years, I have to say they have all been helpful. The only thing I would like done more proficiently is the communication and follow-up. I know they are a very busy firm but it would be nice if they got back to you sooner. Thank you Josephine Zephrine for returning my calls .
