NEW YORK — Macy’s Inc. has agreed to pay a $750,000 fine for failing to report for four years that it had sold children’s clothes with drawstrings at the neck, a strangulation hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said yesterday.
The commission said Macy’s had sold those items, including sweatshirts, sweaters and jackets, at its namesake chain and at Bloomingdale’s and Robinsons-May between 2006 and 2010. Even though it agreed to pay the fine, Macy’s denied the commission’s allegations that it knowingly broke the law.
