Over 210 Little Marc Jacobs girl’s hooded swimwear cover up jackets have been recalled. The jackets have a drawstring around the neck area 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, which could cause potential harm to the child.
No incidences have been reported. However, parents should immediately take the jackets away from children, and either remove the drawstring from the jacket to eliminate the hazard or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. The jackets were purchased from Swimwear Anywhere Outlet, children’s boutiques and other specialty retail stores nationwide and online at www.swimwearanywhere.com from January 2014 through July 2014 for about $89.
The recall involves the Little Marc Jacobs girl’s hooded pull-over swimwear cover up jacket made of 100% cotton. The jackets are navy with red flowers and teal leaves and have a teal bunny applique and two buttons on the front. They were sold in girl’s sizes 2 through 12. Little Marc Jacobs Swimwear, style number LM28616, Lot #1 and the size are printed on the black sewn-in label at the center back of the jackets.
