OFT issues hoody danger alert

Parents are being urged to check TT hoodies bought for their children this year, after concerns that cords in the hoods are a safety hazard.

The Isle of Man Office of Fair Trading has issued a recall for the hoodies, for the age range two to eight years.

The hoodies, imported by Motorsport Merchandise Ltd, have been sold in local shops, on the internet and from stalls behind the Grandstand at the TT.

Cords are not allowed in hoods under safety regulations for children's clothing, because of the danger a child could be strangled if they were caught and tightened around the neck.

The OFT is advising any parents who bought one of the tops to return it for a full refund.

For further information from the OFT you can ring 667808 or 679734.
