CPSC and Neiman Marcus/Bergdorf Goodman Announce Recall of Flammable Bathrobes

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Neiman Marcus of Dallas, Texas, and Bergdorf Goodman of New York, N.Y., arevoluntarily recalling over 6,500 cotton terry cloth bathrobes for men and women made by EGERIA International. The fabric, which fails to meet federal mandatory standards of fabric flammability, may ignite readily and presents a serious risk of burn injuries in violation of the federal Flammable Fabrics Act. Fabrics that do not comply with the standard typically burn faster than newspaper.

Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman are aware of four incidents of these bathrobes igniting when exposed to a flame, but no injuries resulted.

The robes have a label at the neckline that reads, "Made expressly for Bergdorf Goodman by EGERIA," "EGERIA International," or "The DREAM Robe made by EGERIA expressly for Neiman Marcus." The men's and women's bathrobes are 100% cotton terry cloth, which feels heavy and soft. The robes come in kimono (no collar) and shawl collar styles in both short and long lengths. The robes come in a variety of colors, including black, navy, wine, teal, pink, yellow, light blue, white, and off-white.

Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman stores nationwide sold these bathrobes from December 1988 through February 1997 for about $220 to $330.

Consumers should immediately stop wearing these EGERIA bathrobes and return them to any Neiman Marcus or Bergdorf Goodman store for a full refund. For more information, consumers should call Neiman Marcus at (800) 685-6695 or Bergdorf Goodman at (800) 218-4918. Consumers can also call CPSC's toll-free hotline at (800) 638-2772.

This recall does not extend to other terry cloth bathrobes sold by Neiman Marcus or Bergdorf Goodman stores.
