CPSC Recalls Girls’ Jackets


The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced last week that it is recalling a set of girls’ jackets that were sold at Burlington Coat Factory, Cookie’s Department Stores, and Kids Stop stores from August 2013 to October 2013.

The products in question were recalled because they have a band of material around the neck area that can pose a strangulation hazard to young children. The jackets have the name U.S. Polo Association with the year 1890 and crossed polo mallets on the upper right exterior and a silhouette of two polo players and the initials USPA on the upper left exterior. They were originally made in China and imported and decorated by New York-based Q4 Designs LLC, a non-listed ASI supplier a company not believed to be selling currently in the ad specialty market.

The recall continues a long line of children’s outerwear recalls conducted by the CPSC over the past two years. The consumer product watchdog has increased its scrutiny of children’s apparel and deemed that any drawstrings or extra material around the neck area of kids’ outerwear is unsafe. "In July 2011, CPSC issued a federal regulation regarding drawstrings in children's upper outerwear," the CPSC said in a written statement. "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."

Items like mugs, pens and t-shirts are memorable and provide a better cost per impression for advertisers than almost every major marketing effort like prime time TV, magazines and radio.

With so many businesses buying ad specialties there is a huge opportunity for professionals looking to make great money running a promotional products distributorship. It’s easy and inexpensive to get started and you can work from home.
