WASHINGTON, DC (KAIT) - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Topson Downs of California, of Culver City, CA have announced the voluntary recall of women's dresses sold exclusively at Macy's from March 2011 through May 2011 for about $60.

According to CPSC, the dress was recalled due to a failure to meet the federal flammability standard for apparel, posing a fire hazard to consumers. However, no injuries or deaths have been reported.

CPSC says the dress is a Bar III brand fully lined with a sheer rayon outer layer. The dress has a white label with "Bar III" written in black and has a checkered, multi-colored, and black pattern called "Mint Chili Combo." It was sold in five adult sizes, ranging from extra small to extra large.

Consumers are asked to immediately stop wearing the garment and return it to Macy's for a full refund. You can also contact Macy's toll-free at (888) 257-5949 between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. ET, or visit the Macy's website at macys.com, or contact Topson Downs at (800) 241-2975 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT, or via email at customerservice@topsondowns.com.
