Cotton and polyester jackets under the Sugarfly brand are being recalled by the New York City-based Runway Fashions because of the risk that they may lead a user to be strangled. 820 of these children’s jackets could run up against federal regulations designed to eliminate the risk of strangulation to children. Children’s jackets are not supposed to contain drawstrings near the neck due to the hazard that this would pose, but unfortunately, these particular jackets have those drawstrings and thus federal standards are breached. No injuries have been reported in relation to the issue, and parents are being asked to protect their own kids by taking out the drawstrings. A refund can be sought from Burlington Coat Factory, the only retail outlet where these products were available.
