On April 21, 2010, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Trendset Originals LLC, of New York, N.Y., announced a voluntary recall of more than 2,400 girls' hooded jackets, due to an entanglement hazard to young children. The hooded jackets have drawstrings through the hood and waist that are in violation to industry standards issued in 1997.
The current recall affects two different styles of girls' jackets, including:
- Shampoo brand jackets (denim) with a pink hood and pink sleeves (sizes 5/6, 7/8, 10/12, 14/16)
- Marci & Me brand sweater jackets (black or tan; sizes 7/8, 10/12, 14/16)
The jackets were sold in Burlington Coat Factory stores nationwide from September 2007 through September 2009. Consumers are urged to remove the drawstrings immediately from the jackets to eliminate the strangulation hazard, and consumers may return the jackets to any Burlington Coat factory store for a full refund.
