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 RMP Athletic Locker nor Health Canada has received reports of consumer incidents or injuries to Canadians related to the use of these recalled hoodies and jackets.
