Puma Youth Training Jacket Recalled Because of Entanglement Hazard

Puma North America, Inc. recently announced a recall of Puma USA V-Konstruct Training Jacket with Pockets. There have been no injuries reported.

The jacket has a drawstring at the waist that has toggles and is not stitched to the back of the jacket. The drawstring could become snagged or caught in small spaces or vehicle doors and it poses an entanglement hazard. In February 1996, CPSC issued guidelines (pdf) about drawstrings in children's upper outerwear. In 1997, those guidelines were incorporated into a voluntary standard. Then in July 2011, based on the guidelines and voluntary standard, CPSC issued a federal regulation. CPSC's actions demonstrate a commitment to help prevent children from strangling or getting entangled on neck and waist drawstrings in upper outerwear, such as jackets and sweatshirts.

The Puma youth training jackets were sold from January 2007 through January 2012. This recall involves the USA V-Konstruct Training Jacket with Pockets model numbers 65110201, 65110202, 65110203, 65110204 and 65110205. The model numbers are printed on the white care label that is stitched into a side seam towards the bottom of the jacket. The model numbers appear to the right of the words "(PVC Free)" and below the words "ART.NO." The recalled jackets have a short collar, full length zipper, two pockets, a mesh panel running along the back of the shoulders and under the sleeves and an elastic cord with toggles at the waist. The PUMA logo is featured on the upper right chest and left sleeve. The jackets were sold in YS (youth small), YM (youth medium) and YL (youth large) and in color combinations red/black, green/black, blue/black, navy/gray and black/gray.

Approximately 5,000 Puma youth jackets were sold at clothing retail stores nationwide and online from January 2007 through January 2012 for between $12 and $55.

According to the recall notice, consumers should stop using these recalled youth jackets immediately and return the product to the retailer to obtain a full refund.
