Marc Jacobs Girls Hooded Jackets Recalled Due to Strangulation Hazard

Swimwear Anywhere Recalls Little Marc Jacobs Girls Hooded Jackets Due to Strangulation Hazard (Recall Alert)

Recall Summary

Name of product:
Hooded swimwear jackets
Hazard:
The jackets have a drawstring around the neck area which poses a strangulation hazard to children. Drawstrings can become entangled or caught on playground slides, hand rails, school bus doors or other moving objects, posing a significant strangulation and/or entanglement 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.
