I am really really angry. I purchased a coat from Burlington Coat Factory that is made by POLO US assn. (not to be confused with Polo Ralph Lauren). This coat was to be for my 2 year old son. I was distracted in the store (shopping with a two year old and a four year old will do that to you) otherwise I probably would've noticed there was something wrong with the coat sooner. I brought it home and took it out to show my husband. When I took it out of the bag I noticed a funny odor. I looked carefully at what it was made of. The very first thing listed was Poly Vinyl Chloride 80%-that is 80% PVC. Not only can't I believe I purchased a coat that can cause cancer. I can't believe that Burlington would actually sell such a product. I have emailed them and am awaiting a response.
Monday I plan on returning the coat and telling them that they should return all the coats back to the manufacturer. I am also writing a letter to the company and informing them about their poor choice in use of materials for clothing. I am absolutely shocked that they would use this material in their clothing. I posted the links to the store and us polo assn. in case anyone else is interested in contacting them to let them know this is not an appropriate material for clothing. When I googled us polo assn I found out sears,among other stores sell their product. I am surprised that these companies would market toxic clothing to our children and our families.
