Some of our UPF 50+ styles missed the mark
We recently discovered that some products in two of our sun protection lines — certain styles of the Capilene® Cool Daily and the Tropic Comfort families — do not provide the UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) 50+ protection indicated on the garment. Our tests confirm a range of UPF 17–45 instead of UPF 50, meaning the wearer may be exposed to greater levels of UV radiation than expected. This may lead to sunburn and may pose a risk of serious and sometimes irreversable damage to skin.
We've pulled our existing inventory, halted distribution of the affected styles until we can fix the problem, and we're recalling the affected products.
