Health Canada has determined that hoodies with drawstrings around the neck area pose a strangulation hazard to children. Drawstrings can become entangled or caught on playground slides, hand rails, school bus doors or other moving objects, posing a significant strangulation and/or entanglement hazard to children.
Neither BRP nor Health Canada has not received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of these products.
Approximately 5093 recalled products were sold in Canada.
Time period sold
The recalled products were sold from August 2007 to December 2014 in Canada.
Place of origin
Manufactured in China.
What you should do
Consumers should immediately remove the drawstring from the sweatshirt hood or neck by pulling on it to eliminate the hazard.
For more information, consumers can contact BRP by telephone at 1-888-272-9222 from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. ET on Monday to Friday.
Consumers may view the release by the US CPSC on the Commission's website.
