Additional information:Boys Hooded Jackets Drawstring
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves some Vans’ AV Edict Hooded Jackets for Boys. The recalled Jackets were sold in boy’s sizes S, M, L and XL and made from black cotton or black canvas with a drawstring through the hood. The word, “Vans” is printed on a tab above the Jacket’s left front pocket. An intertwined “AV” logo is embroidered in black beneath the lower right pocket and also appears on the Jacket’s snaps. The words, “Vans”, “OFF THE WALL” and an intertwined “AV” logo are sewn on a label inside neck of the Jacket.

According to the CPSC, the Jackets have drawstrings in the hood around the neck area that 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.
