USA: Kmart Fleece Sweatshirts Recalled
Five-Y Clothing said today it is recalling about 42,000 fleece sweatshirts, which the company sells through Kmart. These garments, which fail to meet the federal mandatory standards for fabric flammability, could ignite easily and present a serious risk of burn injuries.The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), and Five-Y Clothing are not aware of any injuries involving these sweatshirts. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injuries. The recalled ladies sweatshirts are made of a fleece fabric that closely resembles that of an inside-outside sweatshirt. They are long- sleeved, pullover-style, grey, and 90 per cent cotton and 10 per cent polyester. A label sewn into the neck of the sweatshirts reads in part, "Route 66 Original Clothing," "Made in El Salvador", and "R.N. 94401." Kmart stores nationwide exclusively sold the ladies sweatshirts from June 1999 through March 2000.
