Children's sweatshirts sold at Burlington Coat Factory have dangerous drawstrings.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says Haselson International Trading imported the sweatshirts.

The drawstring placement at the neck and waist violates US standards designed to keep children from getting entangled and being strangled.

The sweathshirts were sold under the names Kani Gold and Road block from July 2006 to September 2009.

Parents can remove the drawstrings to elminate the hazard or return to Burlington for a refund.
