CALGARY, Feb. 21, 2014 /CNW/ - FGL Sports is voluntarily issuing this
advisory to consumers who have purchased children and youth upper
outerwear hoodies and jackets with a drawstring and/or toggle located
at the hood/neck area.
FGL has decided to voluntarily issue this advisory as Health Canada's
sampling and evaluation program has determined that drawstrings on
children's outerwear can become caught on playground equipment, fences
or other objects and could result in strangulation.
Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings and/or toggle from
the hood/neck area to eliminate the hazard.
FGL Sports has not received any reported injuries or incidents regarding
these articles of clothing.
