About 210,000 Boys and Girls Pull-On Lounge Pants and Girls Boxers have been recalled because they violate the Federal Flammability Standard, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
Why it’s being recalled: The pants and boxers fail to meet the federal flammability standards for children’s sleepwear, posing a risk of burn injury to children. Rigo has received one report of a garment catching fire and causing severe burns to the front and back of both legs of a 9-year-old boy.
Description: The recalled items are Academy pull-on lounge pants for boys and girls, and boxers for girls. The garments are made of 100 percent cotton and have elastic or fabric waistbands.
The pants and boxers have a variety of colors and print designs, including guitars, bikes, skates, footballs, baseballs, softballs, soccer balls, volleyballs, deer, zebra, horses, penguins and leopards. Some clothing may have the words “cheer,” “champs,” “soccer stars,” “peaceful,” “dance” or “perfect 10” printed on them. The garments are sold in sizes XS through L for boys or 6 through 14 for girls.
The garments have identification numbers on a tag directly under the size tag on the rear section of the waistband. Garments with the following identification numbers are included in this recall:
