WASHINGTON, May 14 (UPI) -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of Tommy Hilfiger U.S.A. sweatshirts due to a violation of flammability standards.

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.

Consumers can call 800-866-6922 for information.
