US: Next Marketing recalls 22,000 fleeces
Next Marketing said it is recalling about 22,000 youths' hooded fleeces because their drawstrings pose a strangulation hazard.
Next, in cooperation with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), said the drawstrings on the fleeces' hoods could be dangerous to children.
In February 1996, CPSC issued guidelines to help prevent children from strangling or getting entangled on the neck and waist by drawstrings in upper garments, such as jackets and sweatshirts.
No incidents have yet been reported regarding the fleeces, which were made in China and Pakistan, CPSC said.
