(REUTERS) - Canadian athletic clothing company Lululemon Athletica Inc, which suffered an embarrassing recall of overly sheer yoga pants last spring, is fielding what it calls a small number of complaints over the quality of some of its pants.

The new batch of complaints has focused on a couple of styles of pants - Groove and Wunder Under, according to news reports.

A Lululemon spokesman said in an email that the problem is not widespread, and that only a very small number of customers has complained. Her email mentioned only Groove Pants, not Wunder Under.

"We've heard from a very small number of guests that they have experienced some piling on their Groove Pants," spokesman Alecia Pulman said in the email on Friday. Her email was in response to queries from Reuters and other news organisations.
