About 400 sweatshirts were imported from Indonesia by Tommy Hilfiger U.S.A. Inc. of New York and sold nationwide from August 2009 through January 2010 for between $50 and $70.
The sweatshirts do not meet federal standards for flammability, the commission said in a statement.
The recall involves children's sweatshirts sold in sizes 4 through 16 with "N.Y.C." and "Hilfiger College" printed on the front.
The sweatshirts were sold in three styles: Orange and brown, with hoods and front zippers; orange, brown and black as hooded pullovers and black with a zippered front and no hood.
Consumers were advised to stop using the sweatshirts and contact Tommy Hilfiger for a full refund.
