This means that the product is resistant to fire. Everything from jackets to Christmas trees to tents may be flame-retardant. It is a good idea to buy Flame retardant products, especially if there is any possiblity of them coming into contact with a heat source. (Plastic Christmas trees are flame retarded because Christmas lights get hot, tents are often used near a campfire.)
