Target Recalls Children’s Sleepwear Due To Fire Risk
DETROIT (WWJ) - Target stores nationwide are recalling 560,000 children’s two-piece pajama sets due to a violation of the federal flammability standard.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said the pajama sets fail to meet federal flammability standards for children’s sleepwear because they do not meet the tight-fitting sizing requirements. This poses a burn hazard to children.
The recall involves Target Circo and Xhilaration children’s cotton or cotton/fleece two-piece pajama sets. They were sold in infant and toddler sizes 12M, 2T, 3T, 4T and 5T, and in girls and boys sizes XS, S, M, L and XL. There are a variety of colors and designs, including stars, dots, skulls, peace signs, cats, owls, footballs and camouflage.
To see a complete list of item numbers included in this recall, visit the firm’s website.
The item number is located on a tag on the shirt’s side seam and on the pants at the waist. The pajamas were also sold with a yellow hangtag that states, “For child’s safety, garment should fit snugly. This garment is not flame resistant. Loose-fitting garment is more likely to catch fire.”
The pajamas were sold exclusively at Target stores and online at target.com from August 2012 through November 2012 for between $8 and $13.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled pajamas away from children and return them to any Target for a full refund.
