EMH Associates recalls hooded jackets

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of EMH Associates hooded jackets due to an entrapment hazard.

About 4,400 jackets were imported from China by EMH Associates Inc. of New York City and sold nationwide at Meijers Stores in July 2008 for about $15 apiece.

The jackets, which come in a variety of colors, include drawstrings around the waist that can trap a child, the commission said.

The recall involves jackets sizes 7/8 through 16 with RN number 115036 in styles defined as numbers WD36687 or WD36689. Consumers were advised to remove the drawstrings from the recalled garments or return the jackets to the retailer for a full refund.

Consumers can call EMH Associates collect at 212-575 -4311 for information.
