Several Children Garments Recalled

Comments Off

In the month of April several children’s clothing items were recalled due to risk of strangulation posed by drawstrings.

In February 1996, the CPSC issued guidelines (PDF) to help prevent children from strangling or becoming entangled on the neck and waist drawstring in upper garments such as sweatshirts.
