Hey, Lululemon Lovers: The Company Has Been Hit With Another Product Recall
June 26, 2015
If you own a Lululemon top, you might want to watch out…literally. The major activewear retailer has recalled 318,000 tops across the U.S. and Canada due to seven reports of face and eye injuries, as reported by Forbes. This has been the company’s first major recall following the sheer pants debacle from 2013.
As stated in a notice from the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, at least 20 styles of tops have been recalled. Most hoodies and sweatshirts with drawstrings seem to be giving people trouble. “When the elastic draw cord with a hard tip in the hood or around the neck area is pulled or caught on something and released, it can snap back, impact the face area and result in injury,” it says in the notice.
A Lululemon spokesperson said, “Our main priority is ensuring our product works for our guests, and we believe this is the necessary proactive action. We are committed to making our product right for our guests and regret any inconvenience this may have caused them.”
The spokesperson also noted “no lawsuits have been filed and no serious injuries reported.” Well, that’s good to know.
