Girls’ hooded sweatshirts sold exclusively at Nordstrom recalled for strangulation hazard

By Colleen Kave, J.D.

RDG Global LLC, of New York, has recalled around 2,600 girls’ hooded sweatshirts because the hooded sweatshirts have a drawstring in the hood which poses 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 or entanglement hazard to children (CPSC Recall Notice, No. 17-106, March 9, 2017).

Incidents and injuries. No incidents or injuries have been reported.

Product description. This recall involves RDG Global girls’ olive green-colored hooded sweatshirts with drawstrings inside the lining of the hood. The sweatshirts are polyester and spandex with a sherpa-lined hood. There is an asymmetric zipper on the front of the garment. They were sold in girls’ sizes S (6-7), M (8-10), and L (12). A blue size label with "Freshman 1996" and "Made in China" is located at the center back neck of the sweatshirt. Another label in the neck seam has the words RDG Global LLC and VB740 and 8K80375N. A label in the side seam has the care instructions and RN# 146919.

These girls’ hooded sweatshirts, which were manufactured in China, were sold exclusively at Nordstrom stores nationwide and online at www.Nordstrom.com from November 2016 through January 2017 for about $60.

Remedy. Consumers should remove the drawstrings from the garment immediately to eliminate the hazard, or contact RDG Global or Nordstrom for a full refund.

Customer contact. For more information, customers may contact RDG Global at (844) 851-9979 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or online at www.rdgglobal.nyc and click on "Product Recalls" at the bottom of the page.
