Product Recall: Runway Global Girls’ Sugarfly Hooded Jackets Due to Strangulation Hazard


More than 800 Sugarfly girls’ jackets are being recalled.  The recall involves three styles of Sugarfly-branded hooded, woven cotton and woven polyester jackets for girls with a drawstring through the hood.

From the CPSC: ‘The jackets have drawstrings in the hood around the neck area that pose a strangulation hazard to young 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.”

The jackets were sold at Burlington Coat Factory between September 2011 and Sept. 2013.  The company is offering a refund.   Contact them at: Runway Global  (855) 248-1566 or online at and click on “Sugarfly Girls”.
