CPSC serious about drawstring rule --- five more recalls
CPSC recalled five different children's sweatshirts and jackets with drawstrings today. Last year they fined more than a dozen companies for selling these products -- the drawstrings pose a strangulation hazard for children. If you have a child's garment with drawstrings -- remove them! And if you see them in stores, report it to CPSC. This is a danger that can be eliminated.
