Wearever Girl's Hooded Jacket Sets Recalled by David's Place Due to Strangulation Hazard; Sold Exclusively at Burlington Coat Factory

WASHINGTONDec. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Consumers should stop using this product unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

Recall Summary

Name of product: Girl's long sleeve hooded jacket and pant sets

Hazard: The jackets sold with the set have drawstrings through the hood which pose a strangulation hazard to young children. In February 1996, CPSC issued guidelines for 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.

Remedy: Refund, Repair

Consumer Contact: David's Place Off Price Clothing toll-free at (888) 394-1398 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday or e-mail at for more information.
