Pure Baby Organics Boys Hoodie Recalled by Chantique’s Corp. Due To Strangulation Hazard


Recall Date: September 30, 2014

Recall Number: 14-287

Recall Summary

Name of Product: Boy’s Zipper Hooded Hoodie

Hazard: The sweaters have a drawstring around the neck area which poses a strangulation hazard to children. Drawstrings can become entangled or caught on playground slides, hand rails, school bus doors or other moving objects, posing a significant strangulation or an entanglement hazard to children. In February 1996, CPSC issued guidelines about drawstrings in children’s upper outerwear. In 1997, those guidelines were incorporated into a voluntary standard. Then, in July 2011, based on the guidelines and voluntary standard, CPSC issued a federal regulation. CPSC’s actions demonstrate a commitment to help prevent children from strangling or getting entangled on neck and waist drawstrings in upper outerwear, such as jackets and sweatshirts.

Remedy: Refund

Consumer Contact: Chantique’s Corp collect at (213) 629-3222 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PT, Monday through Friday or email at for more information.
