What is the problem?
Drawstrings on the detachable cape can pose a strangulation hazard to young children. In February 1996, CPSC issued guidelines (which were incorporated into an industry voluntary standard in 1997) to help prevent children from strangling or getting entangled on the neck and waist drawstrings in upper garments, such as jackets and sweatshirts.
How can I tell if I own this product?
This recall involves S. Rothschild girls' wool coats with a detachable cape. The coats were sold in pink, red, blue and vanilla with a faux fur cape and in charcoal and vanilla with a faux fur trimmed cape. Two faux pompoms are attached to the end of drawstrings that hang from the cape. The sewn-in neck tag reads, "ROTHSCHILD SINCE 1881." See recalled style numbers.
These items were sold new+ at Burlington Coat Factory, Famous Barr, Filene's Basement, Parisian and other retail stores nationwide from September 2006 through September 2009 for between $70 and $100.
