On May 13, 2010, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Health Canada, and Tommy Hilfiger U.S.A. Inc. announced a safety recall of approximately 1,700 Tommy Hilfiger sweatshirts in the U.S. and Canada, after the sweatshirts were found to fail to meet federal flammability standards for apparel. The sweatshirts pose a burn hazard to consumers, as they can easily catch fire when exposed to a flame or spark.
The recall affects all Tommy Hilfiger brand children's sweatshirts in sizes 4 to 16, with the letters "N.Y.C." and "Hilfiger College" printed on the front. The sweatshirts were sold from August 2009 through January 2010. The following styles have been recalled:
- Noah Hooded Zip L/S (black zippered jacket, style number E552217830)
- Leo Mini Hooded Zipthru (orange and brown hooded sweatshirt with zipper, style number BJ52217867)
- Leo Hooded Sweat (orange, brown, or black hooded pullover, style number E552217832)
Consumers are advised to stop using the recalled sweatshirts immediately and contact Tommy Hilfiger at 800-866-6922 to receive a full refund.
