Children's upper outerwear with drawstring in the hood and neck area
This recall involves children's outerwear with drawstring in the hood and neck area. These outdoor garments, made of 100% wool or a 50% wool/50% cotton blend, are made by artisans of the Equator and bear a label marked Trésart Caché. These outdoor garments were available in children's sizes 0 to 10 and were available in a range of colours and designs. Only some of the products are shown in the images.

An unknown number of the recalled products were sold in Canada.
