American Apparel Is Recalling Children’s Sleep Sacks Due to Burn Risk

If you've recently purchased one, listen up.

United States Consumer Product Safety Commission

Clothing brand American Apparel has issued a recall for their children’s sleep sacks, due to potential burn risk. According to a report published on May 28 by the The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, 10,600 sleep sacks failed to meet flammability standards for children’s sleepwear. The affected products were sold online at www.americanapparel.com from January 2018 through January 2019 for between $15 and $20.

The report gives the following description of the faulty product:

“This recall involves an American Apparel brand Baby Rib Collection children’s 100% cotton and 90% cotton and 10% polyester-blended knit sleep sacks. They were sold in size 6-12 months and in the following colors:  Black, green, gray, light blue, navy, pink, red and white.  American Apparel and Baby Rib Collection are printed on a neck label. Made in Honduras and the size are printed on another neck label.”

Parents can also identify the affected product by the “Made in Honduras” label and the size on another neck label.

  1. How comfortable and prepared do you feeling speaking to your children about race and systemic racism?
    That's not a conversation I plan to have.
    I feel prepared. I will teach them that everyone is equal.
    I feel unprepared and uncomfortable, but plan to have the conversation.
    I feel prepared. I will teach them that inequality is a core American experience.
Thanks for the feedback!

Thankfully, there have been no reports of fire-related injuries with the sleep sacks, but there is a burn risk in the event of a fire.

If you’ve purchased these sleep sacks, the Safety Commission instructs parents to immediately take them away from children, remove them from the household, and contact American Apparel for a full refund or a replacement product of similar value. Gildan Activewear, the importer of the sleep sacks, is also contacting all known purchasers directly.
