- Identification number:
Simon Chang children's packable raincoats with neck drawstrings style number SCU62-760-81
Simon Chang children's unisex hooded raincoats with neck drawstrings available in colors blue, green and red. The raincoats are made of 100% PVC, have a side pocket with a reflective strip and are closed at the front with snaps.
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 Bochi Brothers nor Health Canada has received reports of incidents or injuries to Canadians related to the use of these products.
Approximately 2376 raincoats were sold at various retail locations across Canada.
Time period sold
The recalled products were sold from February 2014 to May 2014.
Place of origin
Manufactured in China.
What you should do
Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings from the neck area to eliminate the hazard.
Please note that the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act prohibits recalled products from being redistributed, sold or even given away in Canada.
Health Canada would like to remind Canadians to report any health or safety incidents related to the use of this product or any other consumer product or cosmetic by filling out the Consumer Product Incident Report Form.
