Macy's recalls kids' sweatshirts

  • Follow Latest News

WASHINGTON — The Consumer Product Safety Commission says Macy's will voluntarily recall about 33,000 hooded children's sweatshirts that pose a strangulation risk.

The recall, announced today, covers boys' and girls' Epic Threads and girls' Greendog sweatshirts, in small and medium sizes, that have a drawstring sewn in the base of the hood. They were sold nationwide from July 2008 to March of this year and cost between $32 and $50.

The sweatshirts were made in India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia and Taiwan. Consumers can remove the drawstring to eliminate risk. If they are returned, the store will give a full refund.

The commission said no injuries have been reported.

For more information, call Macy's Inc. at (888) 257-5949.
