Nourison is recalling 1,400 area rugs sold exclusively at Home Depot. The rugs fail to meet federal flammability standards, posing a fire hazard to consumers.

This recall involves Nourison-branded I-CANDI collection polyester shag rugs. They were sold in one color, denim, consisting of a mix of dark blue, light blue and grey shades. The rugs measure 5-by 7-feet and 7-feet 6-inches by 9-feet 6-inches. 'ICANDI COLLECTION' and 'Nourison' are printed in black on a label affixed to the back of the rug.

The recalled area rugs were sold at Home Depot stores in September 2012.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled rugs and contact Nourison for instructions on how to return the rug for a full refund or replacement, including shipping.

For more information on this recall, contact Nourison toll-free at 800-223-1110 ext. 2358.
