The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Friday The Bon-Ton Stores Inc. of York, Pa., has agreed to pay a civil penalty of $450,000 to resolve allegations that the firm knowingly failed to report to CPSC that its children’s hooded jackets and sweatshirts were sold with drawstrings through the hood.
Children’s upper outerwear with drawstrings, including jackets and sweatshirts, pose a strangulation hazard to children. CPSC and three U.S. importers revealed recalls of children’s jackets and sweatshirts with drawstrings through the hood on Feb. 18, March 10 and May 27, 2010. Bon-Ton was a retailer of about 800 total jackets and sweatshirts in all three recalls.
