"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 company's announcement stated.

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.
