Drawstring Issue Prompts Recall of 6,600 Girls BCG Hooded Windsuits

Posted on

Girls BCG Hooded Windsuits in various sizes are being recalled by the Katy, Texas-based Academy Sports + Outdoors because of a potential strangulation risk posed to the children wearing the products.  These clothing items have drawstrings, which brings the windsuits out of compliance with regulations established in 2011 to protect kids from entanglement risks associated with those components.  No injurious incidents have been reported at this time in association with the 6,600 products being recalled.  To sustain that track record, parents are being asked to bring back the items or to simply take out the drawstrings.  The recall affects those products that were sold at Academy retailers between this past September and October.
