Boys hooded flannel shirts recalled due to choking hazard

By Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyer on May 11, 2012

A potential choking hazard has prompted the recall of approximately 600 boy’s hooded flannel shirts. This voluntary recall has been issued by La Jolla Sport USA Incorporated, a clothing manufacturer headquartered in Irvine, California, at the request of the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission because the drawstring attached to these shirts can pose a strangulation risk to the children the product is designed to fit. O’Neill Pluto brand boy’s long sleeve flannel shirts, equipped with a hood, two chest pockets and a button down shirtfront, manufactured in India and distributed for sale at surfing and sporting goods stores across the United States between September and December of 2011, are equipped with a drawstring that does not comply with federal safety guidelines regulating the specifications for drawstrings attached to children’s upper outerwear. Shirts affected by this recall were available for purchase at surfing specialty stores such as Hansens Surfboards, East Coast Surf Products, Jacks Surf and Sport, Huntington Surf & Sport, Main Beach Surf & Sport, Valley Skate N Surf, Sports Chalet, O’Neill, Riders Outlet for approximately $60, and they were available in sizes ranging from children’s small to children’s extra large. These shirts are dark gray in color with horizontal black stripes, and a label bearing the style name “Pluto Flannel” and style number 41204106 can be found stitched to the interior inseam on the shirt’s left hand side.
