Lululemon Athletica announced on Monday, March 18, 2013 a yoga pants recall, noting that some of their women’s black yoga pants may be too revealing. The clothing company said that shortage of the said product is being expected, since the problem affects 17% of their stocks that were sold in its stores.

According to the FAQ page at on Monday night, some of the yoga pants did not meet their standards, prompting them to pull them out from their stores and website. Lululemon Athletica, with its headquarters located in Vancouver, BC, Canada, said that the items were made of black luon.

As noted in the report, the company started to understand the extent of the problem on Monday, March 11, after a meeting with their store managers. The affected items they received from their factories and were made available in store last March 1 were affected by this yoga pants recall.

“The ingredients, weight and longevity qualities of the women’s black luon bottoms remain the same but the coverage does not, resulting in a level of sheerness in some of our women’s black luon bottoms that fall short of our very high standards.” A statement reads at the Lululemon FAQ page.

“Over the past weekend we pulled all of the affected black luon women’s bottoms from our stores, showrooms, and e-commerce site and are working with our supplier to replace the fabric and our other manufacturers to replace these key items as quickly as possible.” The clothing company added.

Based on the company’s description, luon is made from a combination of nylon and Lycra spandex fibers, and is being manufactured in Vietnam and Taiwan. As of posting, Lululemon said they are now working closely with their manufacturer of the affected yoga pants to determine the main cause of the problem.

Customers who bought the pants in question starting March 1 are being advised to return them and ask for an exchange or a full refund. For more information about this yoga pants recall, consumers may contact their Guest Education Center at 1-877-263-9300 or email at [email protected], or visit
