Warning - dangers of hood and neck drawstrings


Drawstrings on Jackets and Sweatshirts -- There should be no drawstrings on hoods or around the neck. Drawstrings at the waist or bottom of jackets should extend no more than 3 inches to prevent catching in car and school bus doors or getting caught on playground equipment. Parents - remove hood and neck drawstrings from your children's clothing to reduce the risk of strangulation.
