Target recalls children's two-piece pajama sets
The garments violate the federal flammability standard
Thursday, January 17, 2013
Target Corp., of Minneapolis, MN, is recalling about 560,000 children's two-piece pajama sets.
The 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. No incidents or injuries have been reported.
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.
A complete list of item numbers included in this recall can be found here.
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."
The pajamas, manufactured in Vietnam and Cambodia, were sold exclusively at Target stores nationwide and online at target.com from August 2012 through November 2012 for between $8 and $13.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled garments away from children and return them to any Target for a full refund.
Consumers may contact Target; at (800) 440-0680, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. CT Monday through Friday.
