About 8,600 <"http://www.yourlawyer.com/practice_areas/product_liability">Christy Womenâ€™s Robes Sold Exclusively at Bloomingdales are being recalled for violation of the Federal Flammability Standard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) just announced. Christy, the importer, is located in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The bathrobes fail to meet the federal flammability standard for clothing textiles and pose a risk of burn injury. To date, the firm has received one report of a robe igniting. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves womenâ€™s wrap bathrobes with long sleeves and a belt. They are made from 100 percent cotton terry cloth in aqua, ivory, white, and porcelain pink. A woven label at the neck edge of the robes read â€œCollection Fifty Nine.â€
The recalled Christy Womenâ€™s Robes were manufactured in Turkey and sold exclusively at Bloomingdaleâ€™s department stores nationwide and www.bloomingdales.com from January 2008 through March 2010 for about $80.
The CPSC is advising consumers to stop using the recalled bathrobes immediately and return them to the Domestics Department in any Bloomingdaleâ€™s store for a full refund. If the Bloomingdaleâ€™s store does not have a Domestics Department, the robe should be returned to the Customer Service Department. Christyâ€™s can be reached toll-free at (800) 261-6326 or at Bloomingdaleâ€™s web site at www.bloomingdales.com.
