Washington, D.C. – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. The pajamas fail to meet federal flammability standards posing a burn hazard to children.
It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.
Name of Product: Children’s two-piece pajama sets
Units: About 560,000
Importer: Target Corp., of Minneapolis, MN.
Manufacturer: Makalot Garments Co. Ltd., of Taiwan
Hazard: The children’s cotton or cotton/fleece pajamas sets fail to meet the federal flammability standards for children’s sleepwear, because they do not meet the tight-fitting sizing requirements. This poses a burn hazard to children.
Incidents/Injuries: None reported
Description: This 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. A tag printed on the neck of the pajamas states “Circo” or “Xhilaration”, “Wear snug-fitting not flame resistant” and the item number. 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.”
Sold exclusively at: Target stores nationwide and online at target.com from August 2012 through November 2012 for between $8.00 and $13.00.
