The AP reports that “Consumers are being urged to immediately stop wearing a certain type of chenille robe made by Blair LLC due to a fire hazard that is believed to have killed at least six people.” This recall followed reports of six deaths that resulted from the robes catching-on-fire, comments the report.
The robes were made in Pakistan and are constructed with chenille. They were “sold in Blair catalogs and on the company Web site, as well as Blair stores in Warren, Pa., Grove City, Pa., and Wilmington, Del., from January 2003 through March 2009. Consumers may return the robe to Blair and receive a refund or a $50 gift card by contacting the company at (877) 392-7095 between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. ET Monday through Saturday, via the firm’s Web site at www.blair.com/recall, or by e-mail at blairproductrecall(at)blair.com.”
