DALLAS/FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – Vans is recalling about 2,400 of its ‘AV Edict’ hooded jackets for boys because the drawstrings in the hood around the neck area pose a strangulation hazard to young children.
Vans stores nationwide and online at vans.com sold the hoodies from September 2012 through September 2013 for about $90. They were sold in boy’s sizes S, M, L and XL and made from black cotton or black canvas with a drawstring through the hood.
Consumers should take the recalled jackets away from children, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund or for a repair.
The jackets were made in India. No injuries have been reported.
The CPSC issued guidelines about drawstrings in children’s upper outerwear in’96. For more information click here to visit the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission website.
