CPSC Recalls Children's Sweatshirts


The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has recalled about 350 Trail Crest brand boys and girls hooded sweatshirts sold in sizes x-small, small and medium. The items – which were manufactured in China and imported by Brooklyn-based Trail Crest – have a camouflage pattern on the shoulders and arms, and include drawstrings in the hood and zippers at the neck. No injuries have been reported to date. The CPSC has consistently recalled kids' apparel that includes drawstrings, viewing them as major safety hazards.

"Consumers should immediately take the garments away from children," the CPSC said. "Consumers can remove the drawstrings to eliminate the hazard or return the garments to Trail Crest for a full refund."

According to the CPSC, the sweatshirts were sold at and at other U.S. stores nationwide from November 2012 to February 2013 for about $15 each. The sweatshirts come in the following color schemes: birch and camouflage, pink and camouflage, and purple and camouflage. There is also tag sewn on the outside of the jacket left sleeve with style number 29121 and an additional Trail Crest tag in the neckline.

The CSPC is asking consumers to come forward and report incidents or injuries related to the sweatshirts through the site
