Clothing Recalls and the Danger of Drawstrings on Children’s Clothing

On Behalf of | May 9, 2012 | Dangerous Or Defective Products

While the earliest guidelines regarding drawstrings in children’s clothing date back more than 15 years, new recalls are still necessary every year. The guidelines for the makers of children’s clothing are voluntary, so non-conforming items are still regularly sold to unsuspecting parents. Parents and guardians must be aware of the products they make available to their children.

Style, durability and cost are considerations when buying your child’s clothes. Please take a few moments to add safety to that list. A little extra attention could help you protect your child and avoid a tragedy.
