A Target pajama recall went into effect this week. The retailer voluntarily recalled 560,000 kids sleepwear sets on fire fears. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Target Corp., consumers should stop using the pajama products under the Target recall and return them to the nearest store for a full refund.
On Jan. 18, Huffington Post provided an update to this product safety recall involving Target pajama brands.
Reportedly, the sleepwear sets, manufactured in Cambodia and Vietnam by Makalot Garments Co. Ltd., of Taiwan, fell short of federal flammability standards.
The growing concern is that numerous makes are not flame resistant, which obviously presents as a fire hazard to kids.
More specifically, the Target pajama recall, according to the CPSC, reads:
"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."
Products under the Target pajama recall were sold online and in brick and mortar stores between August 2012 and November 2012. The sets sold for $8 and $13.
At this time, no injuries have been reported.
