Carhartt today informed customers about a voluntary product notification regarding nine Flame Resistant (FR) sweatshirt styles with durable water repellent finish (DWR) manufactured in 2014 and after. 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. Carhartt has not received any reports of injuries or failures of the product; however, it 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 hardworking 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 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.”
