For example, about 80,000 Speedy children's hooded zipper jackets and hooded pullover jackets with drawstrings were recently recalled. The jackets have a drawstring through the hood, which can pose a strangulation hazard to children. Immediately remove the drawstrings from the sweatshirts to eliminate the hazard, or return the garment to either the store or to Speedy for a full refund. For more information, go to children's hooded sweatshirts with drawstrings.
About 2,000 Bonavita "Cabana" wooden drop side cribs with metal mattress supports were recently recalled. The wooden crib slats can detach or break creating a gap, which can pose an entrapment and strangulation hazard to infants and toddlers. Immediately stop using the recalled cribs and contact LaJobi to receive replacement crib side rails. For more information, go to Bonavita "Cabana" drop side cribs.
In addition, about 2,900 Bonavita "Hudson" and Babi Italia "Pinehurst" drop side cribs were recently recalled.

For more information, go to Bonavita "Hudson" and Babi Italia "Pinehurst" drop side cribs.
About 1,800 outdoor playset gliders designed to hang from home play equipment were recently recalled.

About 9,500 loungewear sets for children described as "Lounge-Around-the-Housewear," "Lounge-About-Housewear," or "Short sets" were recently recalled.
