JLA Home recalls rugs for fire hazard

Texas-based importer JLA Home is recalling about 2,900 rugs sold through JCPenney because they failed to meet flammability standards and lack appropriate warning labels, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.

The recall affects rugs with a zebra-skin design with the item number MF728-1050.

No associated incidents or injuries have been reported.

The rugs, which were made in China, were sold in JCPenney's catalogue and website from December 2007 through July 2008 for between $50 and $70 US.

Consumers can contact the company for a warning label or instructions on returning the rug for a refund.
