The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recently announced that it would recall a line of children’s pajamas that were sold at Target stores across the country due to risks of fire associated with the sleepwear.
In a recent report, the CPSC says that the Circo and Xhilaration brand of children’s pajamas violated the Federal Flammability Standards, thus posing a burn hazard to young children. The garments were evidently made too large for the required size. The problem is that loose fitting garments are much more likely to catch fire.
The specific items that will be recalled are two-piece pajama sets made of cotton and fleece. The Circo and Xhilaration brands were sold in infant, toddler and children’s sizes, all the way up to XL. There are a variety of colors and designs on the pajamas, including stars, dots, skulls, peace signs, cats, owls, footballs and camouflage.
Consumers who purchased the items should immediately stop using the pajamas and return them to any Target store to receive a full refund.
