Recall of children’s pajamas due to flammability concerns
Parents are being asked to discard certain pairs of children’s pajamas that have been recalled due to flammability concerns.
The recall was issued by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) last week and affects 26 designs sold by UK-based company Selfie Craft. The recalled pajamas, some 38,740 in all, were sold over a long period from November 2017 to June last year. The products were made for children aged 3 to 12 and sold with packs of permanent fabric pens that children could use to color pictures on the pajamas. The pens were packaged in a case labeled “Colour In Creative Craft Kit, Crafty Fun, British Design With Love”.
The recall was triggered because of a failure to meet US flammability standards, posing a burn risk to children who wear them. No injuries or incidents related to the products have been reported.
“Quality and fun are the foundation of our brand ethos, providing children with a creative outlet and allowing them to feel a great sense of pride and joy when they are allowed to wear what they have made!” was the official statement from Selfie Craft . “Equally important is safety; our products are rigorously tested to ensure we offer safe products to our customers. Despite all due care and diligence, we have received a notification from the CPSC that our pajamas do not meet children’s sleepwear flammability testing requirements in the US ONLY because the pajama’s dimensions are not classified as “close-fitting”.
“Working closely with CPSC, we have issued a product recall for the affected pajama lines. For safety reasons, customers who have purchased the affected pajama lines must stop using them immediately and destroy them.”
A full list of designs affected by the recall can be found on the CPSC website, along with their respective photos. Despite being a UK company, Selfie Craft only recalls products it sold in the US. They have been sold online by outlets such as Etsy, Macy’s and Uncommon Goods. A full list of providers can also be found on the CPSC page.
To receive a full refund, customers must send a photo of the pajamas cut in half vertically to Selfie Craft using a form on its website. Once approved, the refund will be processed via PayPal.
