Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves some U.S. Polo Assn. Girl’s Jackets. The recalled Jackets have the name “U.S. Polo Assn.” with the year “1890” and crossed polo mallets printed on the Jacket’s upper right exterior and a silhouette of two polo players and the initials “USPA” on the Jacket’s upper left exterior.

The Jackets come in fuchsia, green and cream colors and in girl’s sizes 4 to 16. The name “Q4 Designs LLC” and applicable style numbers can be found on the white tracking label tag sewn into the inside of the Jacket near the waist band. Recalled style numbers include: U274-200 for sizes 4 to 6 and U274-300 for sizes 7 to 16.

According to the CPSC, the Jackets have a band of material at the neck that can pose a strangulation 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. 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.

Consumers should remove or cut the band to eliminate the hazard, or contact Q4 Designs to obtain a full refund. The Jackets were sold at Burlington Coat Factory, Kids Stop and Cookie’s Department Stores from August 2013 to October 2013.
