Kids’ Jackets Recalled By 5 Star Kids Apparel Due to Entanglement Risk

The New York City-based 5 Star Kids Apparel has announced the recall of Mecca-branded children’s hooded jackets sized 2T to XL.  Six styles of the long sleeve jackets are impacted by the recall, which was issued because of the existence of toggled drawstrings around the neck and the bottom of the jackets.  As such, the clothing violates regulations set forth by the federal government in 2011 as a means to reduce the threat of entanglement or strangulation among children.  No such incidents have been reported in association with the estimated 48,000 jackets at this time, and to ensure that continues, the drawstrings and toggles should be removed and tossed out.  The items were available between August 2010 and March 2011.
