- A PRODUCT TEST HAS REVEALED THAT THE NAME IT MITTENS OF THE MODEL NITMILLA MITTEN GIRL 415 CONTAIN FLUORINATED COMPOUNDS.
- AS THE NITMILLA EARWARMER GIRL 415 ARE MADE FROM THE SAME MATERIAL, WE ASSUME THAT THESE ALSO CONTAIN FLUORINATED COMPOUNDS.
Brande, Denmark, 2015-12-2 — /EPR Retail News/ — In our Chemical Restrictions we have a ban against long-chain fluorinated compounds in BESTSELLER products, so we have chosen voluntarily to recall both of these products.
Wearing the mittens does not pose any immediate risk, but added to the total amount of fluorinated compounds that you are exposed to, it may pose a health risk in the long term.
We must emphasise that despite the fluorinated compounds found in the products, they are legal to sell. However, we encourage consumers who have bought the products to return them to a NAME IT store and get a refund. The products may also be sent directly to NAME IT, Fredskovvej, 7330 Brande, Denmark.
