Jimmy Kimmel Live responds to the Lululemon yoga pant recall.

An announcement by Lululemon Athletica that the company was recalling its most popular style of yoga pants made headlines yesterday, from financial analysis of the company's stock to fun poked at the uproar by late-night comics.

A manufacturing snafu resulted in a recent shipment of Luon yoga pants that were see-through. The official word from Lululemon as posted to its website: "The ingredients, weight and longevity qualities of the women’s black luon bottoms remain the same but the coverage does not, resulting in a level of sheerness in some of our women’s black luon bottoms that fall short of our very high standards."

Lululemon is extending refunds or exchanges to customers who purchased the faulty bottoms.

While it works out the issue with its supplier in Taiwan, there could be a shortage of the yoga pants, Lululemon warned. The news affected the company's stock, which fell by at least 5 percent, and in light of the incident it will "reduce its expected first-quarter sales to $333 million to $343 million, down from the $350 million to $355 million it had previously expected," the Wall Street Journal reported.
