WASHINGTON, D.C. (WRDW) -- Academy Sports + Outdoors is recalling Girls BCG Hooded Windsuits due to a possible strangulation hazard.

The hooded windsuits have drawstrings that could cause a strangulation threat to young children, according to the company's site.

The site suggests customers who purchased the windsuits remove the drawstring to eliminate the hazard, or return the garment for a full refund. No injuries have been reported.
