Flame-Resistant Product Notification
Region 2 VPP Sites and SGEs:
SABIC EHS&S Manager and Special Government Employee (SGE) Timothy Knapp passed along this Carhartt FR product notification. If your employees wear FR clothing, please check if this applies to any of their garments. Special Thanks to Tim for his initiative to share this with fellow VPP participants and SGEs.
Carhartt is notifying customers about nine Flame Resistant (FR) sweatshirt styles with durable water repellent (DWR) finish manufactured in 2014 and after, as recent test results indicate these industrial garments may not currently meet part of the requirements of NFPA 2112 and NFPA 70E. There are no reports of injuries or failures of the product; however, as a precautionary measure, we are asking you to contact Customer Service at 888-894-7601 to return the product and obtain a refund.
Carhartt regrets any inconvenience this product notification has caused.
