February 3, 2000Eddie Bauer Recalls Men's
Long-Sleeved, Fleece Sweatshirts
Redmond, 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.
