The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall of Children's Hooded Jackets because the jackets have drawstrings through the hood which can pose a strangulation hazard to young children. In February 1996 CPSC, issued guidelines (pdf) to help prevent children from strangling or getting entangled in the neck and waist drawstrings in upper garments, such as jackets or sweatshirts.
