Kleve / Niederrhein - The Dutch textile discounter Zeeman with a German branch in Kleve am Niederrhein is recalling clothing for young people.
This emerges from a publication on the company's website.
A check has shown that the drawstring is too long in some cases and therefore does not meet the safety requirements, according to Zeeman in the message.
