Target Has Recalled Men's Sweatshirts

Nov 19, 2002 | Safetyalerts.com Target has recalled about 6,000 men's hooded, zip-up sweatshirts. Trends Clothing Corp., of Miami, Fla., manufactured the sweatshirts. The fleece fabric on the inside of these sweatshirts fails to meet federal mandatory standards of fabric flammability because it can ignite readily if exposed to flame, and therefore presents a serious risk of burn injuries in violation of the Federal Flammable Fabrics Act.

CPSC and Target are not aware of any injuries involving these sweatshirts. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injuries.

The recall involves Physical Science-brand, heather-gray, hooded sweatshirts with a full-zippered front and "P87" embroidered on the left chest. The sweatshirts come in sizes small through XXL, and have two sewn-in labels: one reads "PHYS.SCI" and the other reads "65% COTTON," "35% POLYESTER," "RN 17730," MADE IN CHINA" and "SEE REVERSE FOR CARE."

Target Stores nationwide sold the sweatshirts from August 2002 through September 2002 for about $25.

Consumers should immediately stop wearing these sweatshirts and return them to the store where purchased for a full refund.
