Ladies’ Robes Recalled

February 4, 2000

WASHINGTON (AP) _ HANRO USA Inc. of New York City has recalled about 2,100 ladies’ robes that may catch fire too easily.

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

The company received one report that a robe ignited when exposed to flame and burned a woman’s hair, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.

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

The safety commission advises consumers to immediately stop using the robes and return them to the store where purchased for a refund and a $50 HANRO gift certificate.

For more information, consumers can contact HANRO USA at 1-800-889-7443 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. EST Monday through Friday.
