Washington (AP) -- The Consumer Product Safety Commission says Macy's will voluntarily recall about 33,000 hooded children's sweatshirts that pose a strangulation risk.
The recall announced Wednesday covers boys' and girls' epic threads and girls' greendog sweatshirts, in small and medium sizes, that have a drawstring sewn in the base of the hood.
They were sold nationwide from July 2008 to March 2009 and cost between $32 to $50.
The sweatshirts were made in India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia and Taiwan.
Consumers can remove the drawstring to eliminate risk. If they are returned, the store will give a full refund.
The commission said no injuries have been reported.
