ALERT: Boys’ Hoodies Cause a Potential Strangulation Hazard

Submitted by jrlaw on Dec 22nd, 2009

It is not something that we often think of as potentially threatening, but clothing can be added to the seemingly endless list of possible threats to children. According to a story on the New York Injury News, a certain style of hooded flannel and fleece sweatshirts sold exclusively through Burlington Coat Factoryhas recently been recalled. The shirts in question have been shown to present a strangulation hazard, though there have been no reports of injury thus far. The drawstring on the hoodie is at the root of the voluntary product recall.
