Macy’s hooded sweatshirts recalled
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of Macy's Epic Threads and Greendog hooded sweatshirts due to a strangulation hazard.
The drawstring or ties meant to snug up the hood could pose a strangulation risk, the commission said.
The garments were sold at Macy's stores from July 2008 through March 2009 for between $32 and $50.
The models involved in the recall include Epic Threads and Greendog Hooded Sweatshirts.
Consumers should immediately remove the ties from the garments or return them to Macy's for a full refund.
Consumers can call 888-257-5949 for information.
