Children's pajamas recalled due to burn injury risk
Posted By Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge || Jan 26, 2013
When talking about recalls and children's injuries, many tend to focus on things like toxic toys and unsafe playground equipment. Of course injuries from these types of toys and equipment are of real concern and do occur, but it is important for Tennessee parents to remember that risks can be present in all types of children's items, including clothing.
For example, a two-piece pajama set sold at Target was recently recalled. The reasoning behind the recall is due to the fact that the clothes do not meet the federal flammability standards for children's sleepwear. This is due to the fact that the two-piece sleep set does not meet the tight-fitting size requirement.
For parents, what this means is that their child is wearing something that poses a for burn injuries.
The two-piece pajama set was sold in infant and toddler sizes with multiple different types of colors and designs. There have been about 560,000 of these Target "Circo" and Xhilaration sets sold. Some are cotton and some are a combination of cotton and fleece. A tag on the inside of the clothing even states that the pajamas should be worn snuggly, as loose-fitting clothes are more likely to catch fire. However, as just mentioned, the pajamas do not meet the requirement for tight-fitting.
Those who purchased the pajama set are encouraged to bring the clothing back to Target for a refund.
When looking at this recent recall, this should serve as a reminder to Tennessee parents that just because something is sold at a store and geared toward children, it does not make the item safe.
