Multiple sets of Target Pajamas sold in stores and online are being recalled nationwide over fire hazard concerns. The recalled children’s wear fails to meet the minimum sizing requirements, posing a fire risk when exposed to flame sources.
Announced this week, the voluntary recall involves various sets of children’s wear pajamas, specifically girl-wear, that fail to comply with the mandatory sizing requirements set by the federal agencies. The affected clothing has a loose fit of garments that could potentially catch fire if the wearer mistakenly exposes them to a heat or flame source.
All clothing and/or sleepwear meant for children, including the recalled Target pajama sets, must comply with several standards like the mandatory sizing requirements. These standards are usually set by different federal safety agencies.
Oversized or loose children’s wear that fails to meet the minimum sizing criteria, along with other requirements like flammability standards, can often lead to the wearer experiencing burn injuries from heaters, candles, lamps, etc., while sleeping. The minimum requirements and standards set by federal agencies help ensure the safety of children who are the intended users of sleepwear.
Apart from failing to meet sizing requirements, the recalled Target Pajamas poses a risk of catching fire
