KIDS PRODUCT RECALL | Croker Kids Ireland Hoodie

The site stated the hazard:

The sweatshirts 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.

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.


Consumers can contact the company directly at:  The James Trading Group at 800-541-5004 from 9am to 4:30pm ET, Monday through Friday or online at and click on the “Recall” tab on the top menu bar for more information.
