Hooded sweatshirts can be dangerous

Drawstrings can strangle children

Recall roundup - September 2006 Official recent recalls include:

Quicksilver Hide and Seek Girl's Hooded Sweatshirts could strangle a child because they do not meet safety guidelines. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, children's outerwear and sweatshirts should not have drawstrings on the hood. These $40 sweatshirts were sold at department stores across the country.

Hampton Bay Children's Lamps sold at Home Depot stores for about $40 are being recalled because they can cut a child. The windows in the fire truck- and bulldozer-shaped lamps can easily come loose and shatter.

Plastic Hardware Covers for the entire Hold Everything Homeroom bedroom collection are being recalled because they can be easily removed and cause young children to choke. This collection was sold at Hold Everything stores and through catalogs for $75 to $995.

Quicksilver and Roxy Girl Children's Lounge Pants pose a hazard because they do not meet the flammability standards for children's sleepwear. These $20-$50 pants were sold in various patterns in department stores, skate and surf shops and specialty stores across the country from 2003-2006.

Alex Super Cooking Sets with glass lids are being recalled because their glass lids, which are supposed to be unbreakable, can break and cut children.
