Nine women died when cooking with their robes on when it suddenly caught fire.  The fire spread so quickly that the victims never had a chance to remove the garments.  Finally Blair LLC has voluntarily recalled their full-length chenille robes and other chenille products due to their flammability problems. 

All nine deaths occurred before the April 2009 recall but since then other injuries have taken place. Burn injuries are among some of the most painful injuries to endure. In addition to the deaths there have been many moderate to severe burn injuries.

Effective immediately, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is advising women to discontinue wearing these dangerously flammable garments.  Blair products are mainly sold online and in catalogs, but they have a few stores as well. The recalled items include the chenille jacket, robe, lounge jacket and several tops. If you have purchased any of these products, return them to Blair to receive a $50 gift card for store credit. For further information you can visit the CPSC’s website at www.cpsc.gov.

We hope and pray for the families, and all victims should seek the assistance of a pwersonal injury or wrongful death attorney immediately. They have product liability claims.  If you know someone who nmeeds to find a quaalified attorney for these types of cases, we wrote an article on how to find a qualified wrongful death attorney.
