Gwen Stefani Gets Recalled


Well, at least it isn't news that Gwen Stefani was having 8 year old kids make all of her Harajuku clothes. That would be bad, and embarrassing. No, instead it is just a normal, wear it and it might kill you kind of recall. It seems as if the RSL Hoodie and Lovers Leopard hoodies sold for toddlers "have a drawstring through the hood which can pose a strangulation hazard to children."

Now, no one has died and as far as I know, no one has been injured as a result of the jackets, but I'm guessing that someone must have been or else why would there have been an investigation? Do you think someone saw it in the store and knew right away something was wrong with it? I would think no one would really notice unless it happened to their child and then they sent one in to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission.

If you bought one of the jackets you spent $75 but you can get a full refund where you bought it. Oh, and a free best of CD from Gwen. No, not really.

I think parents should be strangled for paying $75 dollars for a kids hoodie.

you would think she would be aware having 2 small kids of her own.
Gap & many other companies banned these years ago for kids.

Take the drawstring out.

Drawstring hoodies for kids have been against the rules for years, and yeah, kids died. They'd be on a slide and the drawstring would catch on the top of the swing and they'd hang themselves.

They legally have to recall them. Too bad the FDA isn't as on the ball as the CPSC or whatever it is.

Every parent I know has the common sense to take the drawstrings out of their kids' hoodies. I really don't see the issue here.
