Clothing Retailer Settles with CPSC in Drawstring Case for $600,000 Fine

Forman Mills, a retailer selling a wide selection of low-priced designer clothing, has agreed to pay a $600,000 civil penalty to settle a Consumer Product Safety Commission complaint that the retailer had, from 2007 to 2010, knowingly sold children's upper outerwear garments with drawstrings that posed a strangulation hazard and presented a substantial risk of injury to children. This Agreement is in settlement of the CPSC staff’s charges and does not constitute an admission by Forman Mills to the charges.
