New York, NY—The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Jean Bourget recalled about 16 children’s hooded cardigans with drawstrings. The CPSC announced the recall on January 7, 2010.

The recall was initiated after discovering that the cardigans have a drawstring through the hood, which can pose a strangulation hazard to young children.

The CPSC reported, “This recall involves hooded cardigans sold under the ‘Lili Gaufrette’ brand name, model number G617093 and named the LEPARIGO cardigan. The cardigans were sold in pink, brown and black, and in children’s sizes 4-14. ‘LiLi Gaufrette MADE IN FRANCE’ is printed on the tag sewn inside the garment, and ‘LiLi’ is printed on the tag sewn onto the left front pocket.”

Consumers are advised to remove the drawstring and return the product to JB inc. for a full refund.

For more information concerning the recall, consumers can contact JB Inc. at 212-279-7672 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday or visit the firm’s website at
