A hooded swimwear cover up jacket has been recalled because the drawstrings don't comply with federal guidelines.

About 210 Little Marc Jacob's girl's hooded pull-over swimwear coverup jackets are affected by the recall. The jackets have a drawstring around the neck which poses a strangulation hazard.

The jackets are navy with red flowers and teal leaves and have a teal bunny appliqué and two buttons on the front. They were sold in girl's sizes 2 through 12. Little Marc Jacobs Swimwear, style number LM28616, Lot #1 and the size are printed on the black sewn-in label at the center back of the jackets.

They were sold at Swimwear Anywhere Outlets, children's boutiques and other specialty retail stores nationwide and online from January 2014 through July 2014 for about $89.

Parents can remove the drawstring from the jacket to eliminate the hazard or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Because drawstrings can become entangled or caught on playground slides, hand rails, school bus doors, or other moving objects, the Consumer Product Safety Commission in 1996 issued guidelines for this type of apparel. Those guidelines became part of a federal regulation in 2011.
