Kohl's fined for selling childrens' sweatshirts with drawstrings at neck

It is well established that neck drawstrings are a safety hazard in childrens' clothing.  Nevertheless, Kohl's Department Stores were selling imported sweatshirts with a drawstring at the neck, even though it had been fined $35,000.00 for the same violation in 2008.  This year, the Consumer Product Safety Commission fined it $425,000.00 for the violation which resulted in a recall in March of 2009.  Despite the earlier violation and fine, Kohl's maintains that it did not knowingly violate the law.
