OTTAWA - A brand of children's jackets are being recalled because they have a drawstring that could present a hazard.

Health Canada says the Calikids nylon waterproof shell jacket, style S1654, are sold in blue, pink, red and yellow colours.

The federal agency says the drawstrings at the bottom of the jackets could become entangled or caught on playground slides, handrails, school bus doors or other moving objects.

More than 3,200 of the Chinese-made jackets have been distributed in Canada and were sold between March 2016 and July 2018.

Health Canada says it does not have any reports of injuries related to the product.
