PhotoRuggable of Gardena, Calif., is recalling about 6,200 Ruggable shag area rugs.

The rug’s shag cover fails to meet the federal flammability standard for carpets and rugs, posing a fire hazard.

No incidents or injuries are reported.

This recall involves three models of Ruggable brand area rugs: the shag vintage crème, the shag ivory and the luxury shag white.

The two-piece rugs measure about 5 feet by 7 feet. The top shag rug cover is made of furry yarn and the bottom piece is an anti-slip floor pad. The shag rug cover was also sold separately.

Ruggable, 100% Acrylic face fiber content and “Made in China” are printed on a label on the underside of the product

The rugs, manufactured in China, were sold online through Ruggable.com, Amazon.com, Americanartdecor.com, Overstock.com and Wayfair.com from July 2018, through January 2019, for about $200.
