The Consumer Product Safety Commission says Macy's will voluntarily recall about 33,000 hooded children's sweatshirts that pose a strangulation risk. The recall announced Wednesday covers boys' and girls' Epic Threads and girls' Greendog sweatshirts, in small and medium sizes, that have a drawstring sewn in the base of the hood. They were sold nationwide from July 2008 to March 2009 and cost between $32 to $50.

The sweatshirts were made in India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia and Taiwan. Consumers can remove the drawstring to eliminate risk. If they are returned, the store will give a full refund.

The commission said no injuries have been reported.

For more information, call Macy's Inc. at (888) 257-5949.


Parents should also watch out for Chelsea's necklace and bracelet sets. They pose a choking hazard to kids.

Call D&D Distributing-Wholesale at 1-800-262-9435 to get a refund.


Wagner Spray Tech is recalling some Milwaukee, ACE, and Wagner heat guns.

They pose fire and burn hazards because an electrical component inside can fail. Call 1-888-925-6244 for a free replacement.
