Popular active wear retailer lululemon athletica
is recalling over 185,000 jackets, hoodies, tops, tunics and pullovers in Canada because the drawstrings can snap back if pulled, possibly hitting those wearing them in the face.
The company says it’s aware of at least five such incidents and injuries.
More than 133,000 of the affected tops were sold in the U.S.
They were sold, primarily prior to 2014, under a variety of names, colours and styles, including:
Carry and Go Hoodie
Cool Down Jacket
Cozy Up Jacket
Dance Studio Jacket
Dance Sweat Shirt
Don’t Hurry Up Be Happy Pullover
Refresh Snap Up
Run Sun Blocker Pullover
Run Track N Field Jacket
Run With It Jacket
Sing, Floss, Travel Jacket
Stow’N Go Jacket
Wear With All Jacket
Lululemon says ”Consumers should stop wearing the tops with the elasitc craw cord and either remove the draw cord or contact lululemon athletica to request a new, non-elastic draw cord with written instructions on how to replace the draw cord.”
Lululemon recalled some yoga pants two years ago after complaints they were too sheer.
