FoxNews: The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued three voluntary recalls involving children's products that were manufactured in China.

About 7,200 children's hooded pullover sweatshirts and zip hooded sweatshirts distributed by New Mode Sportswear in Garden Grove, Calif., are being pulled from shelves because the drawstring on the hood can pose a strangulation hazard. The sweatshirts were sold at various T-shirt outlets on the West Coast from January 2006 through July 2006.

The second recall also involves a drawstring hazard. This time, GTM Sportswear Inc., of Manhattan, Kan., is recalling more than 200,000 children's hooded nylon jackets in sizes XXS-XL (2T-16). Styles include the youth medalist jacket, legacy jacket, eclipse jacket, dominator jacket, booster jacket and achiever jacket. The garments were sold at GTM Sportswear, K-State Super Store, and Cats Closet stores in Kansas and in GTM Sportswear and the Just for Kix catalogs from January 2003 through December 2009.

The last recall pertains to children's toy jewelry sets imported by Playmate Toys of Costa Mesa, Calif. About 250,000 charms sold with the "Tink Tink and Friends" jewelry sets are being recalled because the charms contain an illegal amount of lead. The sets containing the charm accessory were sold in a variety of styles including Tinker Bell's Lil' Tinker Bracelet and Rosetta's Rosebud Key Chain. The items were sold at retailers nationwide from November 2008 through November 2009.

To date, no injuries have been reported in relation to these recalled products.
