Burlington Coat Factory has issued a recall in conjunction with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission for several models of children’s hooded jackets and sweatshirts with draw strings. Among the items being voluntarily recalled is a Disney-branded Winnie the Pooh hooded jacket in toddler sizes. The hooded jackets and sweatshirts have drawstrings through the hood and/or waist which can pose a strangulation or entrapment hazard to children. No injuries or deaths have been reported as a result.
The items were manufactured in China, Cambodia, Korea and the United States and sold at Burlington Coat Factory and other retailers nationwide from January 1995 through September 2009 for between $7 and $30. Consumers are advised to immediately remove the drawstrings or return the jacket to Burlington Coat Factory for a full refund.
