There is an official Target pajama recall issued on Friday, as the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission as well as Target corporation are suggesting that a certain kind of pajamas have failed flammability standards.
In other words, the pajamas you may have been interested in buying your children at Target were thought to be clothing that could easily catch on fire.
Due to a potential burn hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued the following statement concerning approximately 560,000 two-piece pajamas sets:
“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."
The manufacturer of the pajamas is Makalot Garments Co. Ltd., of Taiwan. The clothing was manufactured in Vietnam and Cambodia and ranges in price from $8-13.
The CPSC is informing parents that if you purchased these pajamas for your children to please return them to the store and ask for a full refund.
The pajamas themselves are said to be made out of cotton or cotton-fleece material.
