HANRO USA Inc Offers $50 Gift Certificate for Return of Recalled Ladies Robes

HANRO USA Inc Recalls Ladies RobesNew York, NY (SafetyAlerts) - HANRO USA Inc.  is recalling about 2,100 ladies' robes. The robes fail to meet federal flammability standards for clothing and can ignite readily, presenting a serious risk of burn injuries. Fabrics that do not comply with the standard typically burn faster than newspaper.

HANRO USA Inc. has received one report that a robe ignited when exposed to flame and burned the consumer's hair.

The five different styles of recalled robes are made with 90 percent cotton and 10 percent polyester fleece fabric. The robes contain the sewn-in label "HANRO of Switzerland." They were sold in colors white, blue, ivory, beige and gray, and in sizes XS through L.

Department stores and boutiques nationwide sold these robes from October 1998 through January 2000 for between $280 to $350.

Consumers should stop using these robes immediately and return them to the store where purchased for a refund and a $50 HANRO gift certificate. For more information, contact HANRO USA at (800) 889-7443 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
