Brumlow Mills, of Calhoun, Georgia, has recalled about 1,000 Zen Large and Small Room Rugs. The large rugs fail to meet federal flammability standards and could ignite, posing the risk of fire and burn hazards to consumers. The small rugs fail to meet federal labeling requirements. Small rugs are not required to meet the federal flammability standard; however, they are required to be permanently labeled with the following statement: “FLAMMABLE (FAILS U.S. DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE STANDARD FF 2-70): SHOULD NOT BE USED NEAR SOURCES OF IGNITION.”
This recall involves “Zen design” polypropylene rugs in rust and sage colors. Zen rugs in other colors are not involved in this recall. Only rugs purchased from January 2010 through March 2010 are involved in this recall. The rugs were sold exclusively through J.C. Penney’s website and catalog from January 2010 through March 2010 for between $40 and $400. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled rugs. Consumers with large rugs should contact Brumlow Mills to obtain a replacement or refund. Consumers with small rugs should contact Brumlow Mills to obtain a new label including warning information. The firm is contacting all known users. For additional information, call Brumlow Mills at (877) 879-0176.
