Vancouver-based Lululemon Athletica, makers of cultish yoga gear announced the recall of their popular sheer yoga pants, reports Huffington Post on March 19. Post the recall, the company’s stock hit an all-time low in two months.
According to a media release made by Lululemon, some of the bottoms “made with a batch of black luon did not meet their standards.” The sheer yoga pants revealed more than was expected of their loyal customers, forcing them to yank the pants out of stores, showrooms and e-commerce site. Approximately 17 percent of the women’s bottoms were affected by the substandard quality, which is manufactured in Vietnam and Taiwan.
The problem was first recognized on March 11, when store managers voiced concerns about the sheerness of the women’s black luon bottoms. Soon after, the yoga garb was pulled off the racks and meeting with the supplier to replace the fabric and key items was initiated.
The retailer insists that it hadn’t changed the specifications for the clothing or their suppliers, and is working closely with them to understand what could have happened during the period the fabric was made.
Meanwhile, those who have purchased black luon women’s bottoms since March 1, either online or in stores, and think they have affected product can return them for a full refund or exchange.
