It’s another product recall today! This time we have approximately 9,200 sets of girl’s clothing being recalled by Children’s Apparel Network. The items in question are the Young Hearts Girl’s Three-Piece Clothing Sets. The sets were sold with a pink vest, black pullover shirt and knit pants in sizes 12 months to 6X.
From the CPSC:
The vest sold with these sets has a belt at the waist that could become snagged or caught in small spaces or vehicle doors and it poses an entanglement hazard. 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.
The outfits were sold at children’s apparel stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com from around September 2012 to December 2012 and retailed for $40.
