CPSC Recalls Various Products Made in Mainland China

The CPSC has announced the following recalls of products made in mainland China.

Children’s Rain Ponchos
JW Crawford Inc. has recalled about 1,300 children’s rain ponchos because a drawstring in the poncho’s hood poses a strangulation hazard to children. This recall involves kids’ waterproof hooded rain ponchos sold in clear, red and blue. The lightweight ponchos were sold in packs of six and 12. A white nylon drawstring is attached at the neck of the 40 inches tall by 60 inches wide ponchos. “One size fits all” and  “Made in China” are printed on the front of the packaging. These ponchos were sold on-line at Amazon.com and Wealers.com from May through July 2016.
