Health Canada's sampling and evaluation program has determined that drawstrings on children's upper outerwear can become caught on playground equipment, fences or other objects and result in strangulation, or in the case of a vehicle, the child being dragged.
Neither Joshua Perets Group Inc. nor Health Canada has received any reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of these products.
For more information on the hazards related to drawstrings on children's outerwear and for tips to help consumers eliminate these hazards, see Health Canada's: ‘Is Your Child Safe?’, ‘Industry Guide to Second-hand Products’, and ‘Children's Sleepwear: Flammability Requirement Guidelines’.

Time period sold
The products were sold from December 2011 to March 2014.
