Children’s Pajamas and Robe Recall | Flammability & Burn Risk
The Lyon Firm is investigating flammable clothing burn injury cases on behalf of plaintiffs nationwide. Defective and dangerous children’s robes and pajamas have been recalled by multiple companies.
Children’s pajamas and robes seem like the least of your worries as a parent and as a consumer. But due to a recent pajamas and robe recall and linked potential flammability risks, you may want to take a closer look at what your child is wearing to bed.
Thousands of robes and pajama sets have been recalled after the the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced associated burn hazards. The recalled clothing includes the following:
- Paper Cape children’s pajamas
- ChildLikeMe robes
- SGMWVB robes
- Betusline Official Apparel robes
- BTPEIHTD robes
Paper Cape Pajamas Recall
Over 5,000 children’s pajamas (in children’s sizes 12 months through 12 years) sold by Paper Cape have been recalled for not meeting national flammability standards. The recall involves Paper Cape children’s PJs, including two-piece, long-sleeved Classic Pajamas and Classic Footless Pajama Sleepers.
Consumers should immediately take recalled children’s pajamas out of reach and destroy them. Contact Paper Cape for a refund or store credit. If any injury has occurred, contact an attorney.
Children’s Robe Recall
The ChildLikeMe robe recall includes the 100% polyester fleece hooded robes with a sewn-in side seam belt and two front pockets. The robes were sold in blue, pink with brown polka dots and white with dinosaurs.
The SGMWVB robe recall involves 100% polyester robes sold in sizes 2T through 10 years and sold in blue, plaid, red rose, blue shark, green dinosaur and white dinosaur.
The Betusline Official Apparel robe recall includes polyester robes sold by Betusline Official Apparel on Amazon.com in sizes 12 months to 18 months.
BTPEIHTD recalled robes include robes sold by BTPEIHTD on Amazon.com in black, gray, rose, pink, white, dinosaur, blue and green.
What are Flammability Standards?
The 1953 U.S. Flammable Fabrics Act is supposed to protect the consumer from clothing that could easily ignite and cause burn injury. Flammability regulations require clothing to meet certain standards of durability and flame resistance. When clothing is made of inferior materials or produced in a negligent manner, manufacturers may be held liable following injuries.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) requires that clothes sold in the United States pass flammability tests. If you have been injured after your clothing caught fire too easily, you should contact a burn accident experienced in filing flammable clothing lawsuits.
Consumer and product safety experts have warned of negligent clothing manufacturing processes that endanger consumers, and increase the risk of burn injury. To the dismay of most Americans buying clothes, certain textiles and clothing may contain flammable fabrics that may easily catch fire and burn rapidly.
After any burn injury due to a recalled product, contact a law firm. Product liability lawsuits can end in large settlements, recovering damages and medical expenses, and also may include punitive damages against a company so they are more likely to provide consumers with a safer product in the future.
