American Eagle Outfitters, Inc. is strongly committed to the safety and well being of our customers.
We require our products to meet U.S. state and federal and Canadian national laws and regulations. In certain cases, we also voluntarily adopt industry standards and best practices that may be higher than legally required or where no clear laws exist. For example, we apply California Proposition 65 consent judgment standards to our products that are covered by a Proposition 65 consent judgment to which we are a party, even though not all of the Proposition 65 consent judgments apply outside of the state of California.
To ensure compliance with our product safety standards, we maintain an extensive set of testing protocols for each category of products. All of the products we sell are tested by an independent testing laboratory in accordance with applicable regulatory requirements.
In rare cases where a safety issue has been discovered in a product that has reached our store shelves, we respond with a comprehensive recall process for all of our brands. We have a system in place to identify the manufacturer(s) and production date(s) for our branded products. In the event of a product recall, we activate this system.
We publicly maintain a list of product recalls conducted in conjunction with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) here on our e-commerce website.
