Widespread Recall Of Kid's Pajamas Due To Flammability Hazard: What To Know
A company specializing in children’s wear, sold exclusively on Amazon, has issued a voluntary recall for approximately 13,000 children’s robes.
Pajamas for children sold exclusively at Amazon are being recalled. A number of importers have issued voluntary recalls for approximately 13,000 children’s robes. The recall comes after the pajamas reportedly failed flammability safety standards — posing a potential risk of injury to children, according to the recall notice posted by the United States Consumer Safety Commission (CPSC). Here’s what you need to know.
The CPSC has issued four separate recalls for children’s sleepwear sold at Amazon imported by four companies. Five thousand of the recalled robes were imported by ChildLikeMe, 3,000 robes were imported by SGMWVB Brand, another 2,000 were imported by BTPEIHD, and 350 were imported from Betusline Official Apparel.
According to the CPSC, the products have been recalled for failing “to meet the federal flammability standards for children’s sleepwear, posing a risk of burn injuries to children.” To date, there have not been any injuries related to the use of the recalled robes, according to the CPSC. However, the agency urges parents to remove the pajamas from use “immediately,” and the companies are recalling the products and offering refunds as well.

For the recalled ChildLikeMe pajamas, the robes were sold in sizes 5 through 12 years in various colors and patterns, including white with dinosaurs, pink with brown polka dots, and blue. These were sold exclusively on Amazon online from June 2021 to August 2022 for between $11 and $17.
For the recalled SGMWVB Brand pajamas, the robes were sold in sizes 2T through 10 years in various colors and patterns, including blue, plaid, red rose, blue shark, green dinosaur, and white dinosaur.
