Post On 12-12-2013

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, a possible fire hazard has been linked to a recent recall announcement associated with certain brands of carpet.

The official recall announcement issued by the federal agency indicates that Aristocrat II Carpet sold at Lowe’s stores between June 2013 and September 2013 are being recalled after it was noted that the carpet may fail to meet certain federal flammability standards. This issue, the federal agency stated, could pose a fire risk to consumers.

While no incidents have been reported so far, the company has decided to issue the recall promptly to avoid an incident that could lead to burn injuries or even property damage.
