Parents across the country should be taking a closer look at their children's winter coats, especially if they were purchased at Burlington Coat Factory between 2010 and 2013.
The jackets have a drawstring hood that is a strangulation hazard to children. No injuries have been reported,
Children should stop wearing the coats immediately. Owners can seek a full refund from Burlington Coat Factory or remove the drawstring from the hood to eliminate the hazard.
