Belgium/Brussels: The European Union issues Report 3-2017 of its Rapid Alert System containing 50 new consumer, automotive and industrial-based product recalls; a must-read for parents, caregivers, drivers, health and safety workers, company owners, supervisors and others: http://ht.ly/owYU308gafw
Among the 50 recalls the European Union has announced in this third report of January 2017, the following notification was made:
Wilson Children’s Y Core Cotton Hoodie Sweatshirts and JR Flame Hoodie Sweatshirts sold with type/number model designations of WRE220010, WRE220012 and WRE220011 with no disclosed barcodes/UPCs.
The type of hazard presented includes strangulation injuries due to the drawstring on the recalled Sweatshirts having free ends in the hood that may become trapped during various activities of a child.
This defect poses a risk of strangulation and does not, therefore, comply with the relevant European standard EN 14682. As such, these Hoodie Sweatshirts have been ordered recalled from end users and withdrawn from the marketplace.
