    Macy's Recalls Hooded Sweatshirts
    The national retailer announced a recall of sweatshirts sold at their stores.

    The Consumer Product Safety Commission says Macy's will voluntarily recall about 33,000 hooded children's sweatshirts that pose a strangulation risk.

    The recall announced Wednesday covers boys' and girls' Epic Threads and girls' Greendog sweatshirts, in small and medium sizes, that have a drawstring sewn in the base of the hood. They were sold nationwide from July 2008 to March 2009 and cost between $32 to $50.

    The sweatshirts were made in India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia and Taiwan. Consumers can remove the drawstring to eliminate risk. If they are returned, the store will give a full refund.

    The commission said no injuries have been reported.
