Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall includes Browning Youth Buckmark Junior Hoodie Sweatshirts, sold in sizes Small (“S”), Medium (“M”), Large (“L”) and Extra Large (“XL). The recalled Sweatshirts are made of polyester fabric. The camouflaged print pullover Sweatshirt comes with black drawstrings and has a yellow embroidered Buckmark logo located on the front of the garment. There are pockets located near the waist. The Sweatshirt has a hood, rib knit cuffs and waist. The affected SKUs included in the recall are as follows:

  • Small (“S”) Hoodie Sweatshirt: 3011332001
  • Medium (“M”) Hoodie Sweatshirt: 3011332002
  • Large (“L”) Hoodie Sweatshirt: 3011332003
  • Extra Large(“XL”)  Hoodie Sweatshirt: 3011332004

According to the CPSC, the recalled Hooded Sweatshirts have drawstrings around the neck area that pose a strangulation or an entanglement hazard to young 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. Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings from the hooded sweatshirts to eliminate the hazard or return the garment to Browning for a full refund.
