Trendset Originals LLC Recalls Girls’ Hooded Jackets with Drawstrings Due to Strangulation and Entanglement Hazards

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.
Name of Product: Girls’ hooded jackets
Units: About 2,400 of the Shampoo brand and an unknown number of the Marci & Me brand
Distributor: Trendset Originals LLC, of New York, N.Y.
Hazard: The hooded jackets have a drawstring through the hood that can pose a strangulation hazard to children. The sweater jackets have a drawstring through the waist that can pose an entanglement hazard to children. In February 1996, CPSC issued guidelines (pdf) (which were incorporated into an industry voluntary standard in 1997) to help prevent children from strangling or getting entangled on the neck and waist drawstrings in upper garments, such as jackets and sweatshirts.
Incidents/Injuries: None reported.
Description: This recall involves two styles of girls’ jackets. The Shampoo brand jackets are denim with a pink hood and sleeves, and were sold in sizes 5/6, 7/8, 10/12 and 14/16. The Marci & Me brand sweater jackets are black or tan and were sold in sizes 7/8, 10/12 and 14/16. The tag at the neck reads “Shampoo” or “Marci & Me.”
Sold exclusively at: Burlington Coat Factory stores nationwide from September 2007 through September 2009 for between $11 and $13.
Manufactured in: China and Bangladesh
Remedy: Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings from the jackets to eliminate the hazard. Consumers can also return the jackets to any Burlington Coat Factory store for a full refund.
Consumer Contact: For additional information, contact Trendset Originals at (800) 908-8308 between 9:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s Web site at www.trendsetny.com
