While Europe is still reeling over the horsemeat scandal, the Lululemon company, a Canadian clothing company, is caught up in a different sort of scandal and as a result, is in the midst of recalling some of its yoga pants.
The Vancouver based specialty clothing empire was not caught with its pants down; no, the yoga pants maker and its consumers all had their pants on – the scandal erupted when women realized their yoga pants were see-through.
This isn’t the first time the company has experienced a backlash from producing see-through garments.
The Mar. 20, Boston.com reports that the company “had sheerness problems with certain swimsuits for spring 2012.”
The report went on to say that some of Lululemon’s light-colored pants carry a disclaimer - ‘‘You may experience sheerness with some of our bright-colored bottoms because of the lightweight nature of the fabric. We recommend you do a couple of Down Dogs in your brightly colored bottoms to ensure you’re happy with the fit and coverage.’’
Christine Day, CEO for Lululemon told Business Insider, "The only way to test for the problem is to put the pants on and bend over.”
In yoga terminology – do the downward facing dog.

There have been no reported complaints registered by men.
