Today, the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a recall of Deezo Children’s Hooded Sweatshirts with Drawstrings due to strangulation hazard.
This recall involves a Deezo brand boys’, girls’, and toddlers’ zip-up hoodies made of 65% polyester and 35% cotton. The sweatshirts and jackets have drawstrings through the hood which pose a strangulation hazard to young children. In February 1996, CPSC issued guidelines about drawstrings in children’s upper outerwear. In 1997, those guidelines were incorporated into a voluntary standard. Then, in July 2011, based on the guidelines and voluntary standards, 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.
The sweatshirts and jackets have designs that include a heart with an arrow, swirl, alien, flower, guitar, motor scooter, and circuit board designs and come in the following color combinations: pink with white or black trim; white with pink or green trim; blue with a light blue and white trim and black with blue or green trim.
The following model numbers are included in the recall: 12501, 2502, 12503, 12504, 12505, 12506, 12507, 12508, 12509, 12801, 12802, 12803, 12804, 12806, 12807, 12808, 12809, 12810. Model numbers are located on the care label sewn into the garment’s side seam. The garment’s hangtag has “happyfashion4kids www.deezo.com.au printed on it.
