Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves some Girls Pink Hooded Jackets.  The Jackets are comprised of 97% cotton and 3% spandex and have pink and black leopard print drawstrings and a pink and black leopard print on the sides of the jacket. The phrase, “IQ girls” is printed on the sewn-in label located on the back of the neck. The model number included in the recall is 86557 and can be found printed on a sewn in label in the back of the neck. This recall involves jacket sizes girls 4 through 12.

According to the CPSC, the Jackets have a drawstring through the hood which can pose a strangulation hazard to children. In February 1996, CPSC issued guidelines about drawstrings in children’s upper outerwear. In 1997, those guidelines were incorporated into a voluntary standard. Then, in July 2011, based on the guidelines and voluntary standard, CPSC issued a federal regulation. CPSC’s actions demonstrate a commitment to help prevent children from strangling or getting entangled on neck and waist drawstrings in upper outerwear, such as jackets and sweatshirts.
