Academy Sports + Outdoors Recalls Girls BCG Hooded Windsuits Due to Strangulation Hazard

Washington, DC - Consumers should stop using this product, which is being recalled voluntarily, unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

Recall Summary

Name of product: Girls BCG Hooded Windsuits

Hazard: The hooded windsuits have drawstrings in the hood around the neck area that pose a strangulation hazard to young children. In February 1996, CPSC issued guidelines about drawstrings in children's upper outerwear. In 1997, those guidelines were incorporated into a voluntary standard. Then, in July 2011, based on the guidelines and voluntary standard, CPSC issued a federal regulation. CPSC's actions demonstrate a commitment to help prevent children from strangling or getting entangled on neck and waist drawstrings in upper outerwear, such as jackets and sweatshirts.

Remedy: Refund

Consumer Contact:  Academy Sports + Outdoors toll-free at (888) 922-2336, from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. CT Monday through Saturday and from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. CT on Sunday, or online at www.academy.com and click on Product Recall Info for more information.
