WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and C.K. Enterprises, Richmond, California, today announced a voluntary recall of children's jogging suits sold by the firm. Approximately 6,200 units were imported from Hong Kong and sold nationwide. The jogging suits are identified as style 4061 and the firm has agreed to provide a full refund to consumers who return the jogging suits to the retail stores where they were purchased.
Although these jogging suits have not been involved in any incidents known to the Commission or to C.K. Enterprises, testing shows that the jogging suits fail to meet the Commission's flammability requirement for general wearing apparel.
The recalled children's jogging suits are two-pieced with a zip front jacket. The garments are made of 100% cotton fleece with a neck label tag "le top RN55104". The jogging suits were sold for $10.00 to $20.00 from July 1984 to March 1985.
For further information consumers may contact C.K. Enterprises in writing: 4903 Central Ave., Richmond, CA or the Commission's Toll Free Hotline at 800-638-CPSC. A teletypewriter number for the hearing impaired is (301) 595-7054.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC’s work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 40 years.
Federal law bars any person from selling products subject to a publicly announced voluntary recall by a manufacturer or a mandatory recall ordered by the Commission.
