Target Recalls Half a Million Children's Pajamas
About 560,000 pairs of children's two-piece pajama sets have been recalled by Target for failing to meet federal flammability standards, which poses a burn hazard.
Why the product is being recalled: 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.
Description: The 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 company's website 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."
Where it was sold: The pajamas 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 pajamas away from children and return them to any Target for a full refund.
