RDG Global is recalling approximately 2,600 Girls' hooded sweatshirts that have a drawstring in the hood. 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.

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.

No incidents or injuries have been reported in connection with this recall to date.

Consumers should immediately remove the drawstrings from the garment to eliminate the hazard or contact RDG Global or Nordstrom for a full refund.

The affected sweatshirts were sold at Nordstrom stores nationwide and online from November 2016 through January 2017 for about $60.

Consumers with any additional questions or concerns can contact RDG Global at (844) 851-9979.
