USA: Textile Maker Pays $150,000 Fine
The Consumer Product Safety Commission said that the company had failed to report the sale of the flammable material as required by the Consumer Product Safety Act.
Crawford made 22,570 yards of Sherpa fabric in September 1998 and sold it on to Milano Express. After it was shipped, Crawford received test reports showing six of 23 lots failed federal flammability standards and were unsuitable for clothing because of rapid and intense burning.
The sweatshirts were sold by Costco stores nationwide between October 1998 and April 1999 for about $17.
