Approximately 318,000 tops for women, made by Lululemon Athletica, have been recalled in the U.S. and Canada due to drawstrings with metal or plastic tips that can injure consumers, according to the The New York Times on June 25.
Reports from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) indicate that these jackets have elastic cords hanging from the neck area that may snap and hit consumers in the face. The plastic or metal tip attached at the end of the cords may cause injuries to the eyes or face. Though the company has been notified of at least seven injuries related to this issue, Lululemon spokeswoman Alecia Pulman stated that none of these injuries were serious. Women are advised to check the drawstring attached to their tops to avoid possible injuries.
