June 11 (Reuters) - Yogawear retailer Lululemon Athletica Inc founder Chip Wilson said he voted against the re-election of Chairman Michael Casey and RoAnn Costin to the board.

"After being asked by the board ... to help the company recover from the product recall last year, I have decided to vote against the re-election of the company's outside board members," Wilson said in a statement on Wednesday.

Casey, a former Starbucks Corp executive, rose to chairman from lead director after Wilson resigned as chairman in December.

Wilson owns 27 percent of the company.
