Manufacturer: Browning, of Morgan
Product: Browning Youth Buckmark Junior Hoodie Sweatshirts
Hazard: The hooded sweatshirts have drawstrings around the neck area that pose a strangulation or an entanglement hazard to young children.

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.
Injuries: None reported
