Athletic clothing company Lululemon is facing another wardrobe malfunction: the retailer has voluntary recalled 318,000 women's tops across the United States and Canada after seven reports of eye and face injuries due to potentially dangerous draw cords. (In 2013, the company recalled 17 percent of its popular black yoga bottoms stock after women complained they were too sheer. Their CEO stepped down shortly afterward.)

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, "when the elastic draw cord with a hard tip in the hood or around the neck area is pulled or caught on something and released, it can snap back, impact the face area and result in injury." There's no word yet on the extent of the seven injuries.  

Some 133,000 tops in the U.S. and 185,000 tops in Canada are part of the voluntary recall. They were manufactured between 2008 and December 2014 in various styles and colors. The jackets and hooded tops cost between $75 and $260 and were manufactured in Bangladesh, China, Indonesia and Peru.
