CPSC Recalls Various Products Made in Mainland China
The CPSC has announced a recall of the following products made in mainland China.
Children’s Sweatshirts. Hooey LLC has issued a recall for about 6,600 children’s sweatshirts in the United States as well as 520 children’s sweatshirts in Canada because a drawstring in the hood poses a strangulation hazard. This recall involves 15 styles of youth-sized sweatshirts with the “Hooey” brand or logo and drawstrings in the hood. The sweatshirts are polyester and cotton and generally have a single front pocket. They were sold in boys’ and girls’ sizes XS, S, M, L and XL. A white size label has the word “Hooey” and “Made in China” and is located at the centre back neck of the sweatshirts. A label in the side seam has the garment care instructions. These garments were sold at Boot Barn, Orscheln’s, Cavenders and other western wear apparel stores from September 2017 through October 2019.
Microwave Ovens. The CPSC has announced a recall of approximately 700 microwave ovens because incorrect wiring causes the microwave’s exterior to reach temperatures exceeding 183 degrees Fahrenheit, posing a burn hazard to users. This recall involves 1,000-watt countertop convection microwave ovens manufactured on 27 April 2017 under the Kenmore Elite brand name. This manufacturing date is identifiable by the first six digits of their serial numbers, each of which begins with the numerals “170427”. The model number of the recalled microwaves is 204.77603610. The brand name, model number and serial number can be found on the data plate on the back of the microwave ovens. These products were sold exclusively at Sears and Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores nationwide from May 2017 through July 2018.
