Children's rain ponchos recalled due to strangulation hazard

JW Crawford is recalling children's rain ponchos to fix a potentially life-threatening problem.

According to the company, the drawstrings on the Wealer's kid rain poncho's hood can become entangled or caught on objects causing a strangulation risk.

The recall involves kids’ waterproof hooded rain ponchos sold in clear, red and blue packs of 6 and 12. A white nylon drawstring is attached at the neck of the 40 inches tall by 60 inches wide ponchos. “One size fits all” and  “Made in China” are printed on the front of the packaging.

The ponchos were sold online through Amazon and www.wealers.com from May 2016 through July 2016 for about $12 for a 6 pack and $17 for a 12 pack.

Consumers are urged to immediately take the ponchos away from children and contact JW Crawford for a full refund.

You can reach the company at 1-844-222-2812 between 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and also email recall.jwcrawford@gmail.com or click the recall tab at www.wealers.com
