Eddie Bauer Recalls Men's Long-Sleeved, Fleece Sweatshirts

Eddie Bauer Recalls Men's Long-Sleeved, Fleece SweatshirtsRedmond, WA (SafetyAlerts) - Eddie Bauer is recalling about 2,000 men's long-sleeved, fleece sweatshirts. The sweatshirts fail to meet federal mandatory standards for fabric flammability and could ignite readily.  This presents a serious risk of burn injuries.  Fabrics that do not comply with the standard typically burn faster than newspaper.

The long-sleeved, fleece sweatshirts sold only in the color gray, bear the phrase "Made in USA" on the neckline label, and have item number 1313 or 1249 printed on the side seam label. These sweatshirts are labeled as being 80 percent cotton and 20 percent polyester.

Eddie Bauer stores sold these sweatshirts nationwide from March 1999 through May 1999 for about $38. Sweatshirts made in Singapore are not included in this recall.

Consumers should stop using these sweatshirts and return them to any Eddie Bauer store for a refund. For more information, call Eddie Bauer at (800) 426-6253 between 5 a.m. and 11 p.m. PT any day of the week.
