Benetton Recalls United Colors of Benetton Boys Jackets; Waist Drawstring Poses Entanglement Hazard

Recall date: September 10, 2014
Recall number: 14-272

Recall Summary

Name of product

Boy’s hooded jacket with a waist drawstring

Hazard

The jackets have a drawstring at the waist that could become snagged or caught in small spaces or vehicle doors, posing significant entanglement hazard to children.

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.
