If you purchased an UGG comforter from Bed, Bath & Beyond between August and October of last year, there’s important recall information you need to know.
According to a recent report from the Consumer Product Safety Commission, Several UGG Hudson comforters sold between August 24 and October 17, 2017 were found to have mold on them, an issue that prompted the national retailer to issue a recall of all the blankets sold during that time.
It’s estimated that around 175,000 of the comforters were sold in the US and around 20 in Canada both through physical BB&B stores and through the company’s web site. Comforters purchased through third party vendors during this time are not a part of the recall and have no known mold issues.
UGG’s Hudson comforters come in four different color designs: navy, oatmeal, garnet, and gray, and in three different sizes: twin, full/queen and king. Like many comforters, they were packaged in a cloth zipper bag.The manufacturer believes there may have been a problem with the packaging that allowed moisture to reach the blanket.
Because mold can be a serious health issue for some people, especially those with damaged lungs, compromised immune systems, or mold allergies, customers who purchased a comforter affected by the recall should stop using it immediately, even if they didn’t see any mold when they opened it. They can return it to any Bed, Bath & Beyond store location for a full refund or exchange.
This recall was a voluntary one, and was done through the CPSC’s Fast Track Recall process, where companies who commit to work with CPSC can quickly announce and execute a recall and work through to find a remedy to protect their consumers.
Customers who want more information about the recall are asked to call a representative at 800-462-3966 or visit the store’s web site at www.bedbathandbeyond.com.
