La Senza recalls lingerie sets for fire hazard

La Senza has announced a recall of its black baby-doll lingerie sets because they pose a safety hazard, Health Canada said Tuesday.

Testing by the federal agency showed marabou trim on the product failed to meet flammability standards for clothing and textiles.

"The lingerie could easily catch fire and cause serious burns to consumers if exposed to a heat source such as a candle, cigarette lighter or stove burner," the federal agency said in an advisory.

The recall affects about 760 polyester lingerie sets sold in La Senza stores in Canada until Dec. 20, 2007.

No associated injuries have been reported to Health Canada.

La Senza has removed the lingerie from its stores.
