Louise Paris has recalled about 13,000 girls’ jackets due to dangerous waist drawstrings that can pose entanglement hazards, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
Why it’s being recalled: The jackets have drawstrings at the waist that could become snagged or caught in small spaces or vehicle doors and pose an entanglement hazard to young children.
Description: The recall involves two girls’ polyfill jackets with faux-fur trim around the hoods and drawstrings at the waist. They were sold under the labels “Me Jane Kids” or “B-Hip Kids by Me Jane”, and the labels bearing these names are found at the back neck of the garments.
The jackets were sold in youth sizes 4- 6X and 7-16. These jackets were also labeled by sizes S, M, L. One style labeled “Me Jane Kids” is fleece with front drawstrings with toggles at the ends and sold in the following colors: green, charcoal grey and black. Other “Me Jane Kids” or “B-Hip Kids by Me Jane” brand labeled bubble jackets have drawstrings on the back, no toggles and were sold in the following colors: purple, black, pink, coffee, and cream.
Where it was sold: The jackets were sold exclusively at Ross Stores, Inc. nationwide from November 2011 through January 2012 for about $20.
