PhotoRDG Global of New York is recalling about 2,600 girls’ hooded sweatshirts.

The garments have a drawstring in the hood, which poses a strangulation hazard to children. Drawstrings can become entangled or caught on playground slides, hand rails, school bus doors or other moving objects, posing a significant strangulation or an entanglement hazard to children.

No incidents or injuries are reported.

This recall involves RDG Global girls’ olive green-colored hooded sweatshirts with drawstrings inside the lining of the hood. The sweatshirts are polyester and spandex with a sherpa-lined hood.

There is an asymmetric zipper on the front of the garment. They were sold in girls’ sizes S (6-7), M (8-10), and L (12). A blue size label with “Freshman 1996” and “Made in China” is located at the center back neck of the sweatshirts.

Another label in the neck seam has the words RDG Global LLC and VB740 and 8K80375N. A label in the side seam has the care instructions and RN# 146919.

The hooded sweatshirts, manufactured in China, were sold exclusively at Nordstrom stores nationwide and online at from November 2016, through January 2017, for about $60.
