Half a dozen Western New York thrift stores have been cited by state investigators for selling children’s clothing with drawstrings.

The stores were among 46 shops across the state who were sent cease and desist letters from the state Attorney General’s Office after inspector visits. State and federal laws prohibit the sale of children’s clothing with drawstrings, which put children at risk of strangulation and death.

New York state law prohibits the sale of children’s clothing up to and including size 12 with a drawstring at the neck. Drawstrings are only permissible in certain sizes if specific conditions are met.
