We here at MITA have been informed that Carhartt, Inc. of Dearborn, Mich., is informing its customers that it has voluntarily recalled nine flame-resistant (FR) sweatshirt styles with durable water repellent finish (DWR) that it manufactured in 2014 and afterward. "Test results indicate inconsistencies in the performance ratings of these industrial garments, and some of the garments may not currently meet the requirements of NFPA 2112 and NFPA 70E," the announcement stated.

Carhartt reported it has not received any reports of injuries or failures of the product but is asking for all affected garments to be returned. Customers should contact Carhartt Customer Service at 888-894-7601 to return the product and obtain a refund.

"Carhartt takes seriously the safety of our hard-working customers. Because some of the affected garments may not currently meet the requirements of NFPA 2112 and NFPA 70E and do not meet Carhartt's high quality standards, we are asking all customers to return the affected product," said Linda Hubbard, Carhartt's president and chief operating officer. "We're committed to continuous improvement in our products and processes and will continue to work to meet and exceed industry standards."
