Today, U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission publicized a voluntary recall of the SX and QH Boys’ Zip-front Hooded Jackets from the Bonded Apparel Inc. Approximately 700 units have been reported with a drawstring through the hood which creates chances of strangulation for children.
Consumers, especially including parents, should stop their kids from using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or to attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.
Although no incidents or injuries have been reported as of yet, consumers should prevent risk and take the recalled jacket from their child and remove the drawstrings. Returning of the product for a full refund is also accepted by the Bonded Apparel Company. The units can be found at DD’s Discount Stores nationwide and were available from August 2011 to December 2011 for a cost of $8. If you believe you have purchased a product that falls into that date range you should certainly investigate.
