Entrapment Hazard Recalls

RECALL: Gap Outlet “Warmest Jacket” Boys’ Jackets Due To Entrapment Hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Gap Outlet is recalling 16,200 “Warmest Jacket” Boys’ Jackets because the jackets have a waist drawstring with a toggle that could become snagged or caught in small spaces or doorways, which can pose an entrapment hazard to children.

The jackets are hooded, zip in front, and have a drawstring at the waist. They were sold in navy and gray in multiple children’s sizes. “Gap Outlet” is printed on a label at the neck. Style number 513573 is printed on a white label sewn behind the size and product care label near the neckline.

Parents should stop their kids from wearing the jacket immediately and return it to any Gap Outlet store for a full refund. If you return the jacket before April 30, 2008, a $5 appreciation card will be offered. Gap recommend that parents choosing to keep the jacket should immediately remove the drawstring to eliminate the hazard.

For additional information, contact the company toll-free at (888) 747-3704 between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, Saturday 12 p.m. through 7 p.m. ET, and Sunday 12 p.m. through 6 p.m., or visit the firm’s Web site at www.gapinc.com
