Swimwear Anywear is recalling more than 200 of its Little Marc Jacobs hooded swimwear jackets for potential strangulation hazards. The jackets 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 and/or entanglement hazard to children.
This recall involves the Little Marc Jacobs girl’s hooded pull-over swimwear cover up jacket made of 100% cotton. The jackets are navy with red flowers and teal leaves and have a teal bunny appliqué and two buttons on the front.
No incidents or injuries have been reported.
The company is offering a refund to consumers. Parents should immediately take the jackets away from children. Consumers can remove the drawstring from the jacket to eliminate the hazard or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
The jackets were sold exclusively at Swimwear Anywhere Outlet, children’s boutiques and other specialty retail stores nationwide and online at www.swimwearanywhere.com from January 2014 through July 2014 and retailed around $89.
