Fire chief draws attention to robe recall




Staff Writer


Local fire officials are notifying area residents of the U.S. Fire Administration’s recent recall on two particular children’s clothing items due to their high potential for flammability.

Lincolnton Fire Chief Mike Lee notified the Times-News Thursday morning of two specific recalls. According to a fire administration press release, Petit Lem Children’s Pajamas “fail to meet the federal flammability standards for children’s sleepwear, posing a risk of burn injury to children.”

The cotton pajamas, sold in sizes two to 12, are a two-piece sleepwear set consisting of shorts and a short-sleeved shirt designed with various types of colors and prints, authorities said.

The item was sold for around $30 between January and November 2009 at various specialty children’s stores.

In addition, the U.S. fire administration has placed a recall on Hanna Andersson brand robes, specifically their “fluffy, white fleece robes with large multi-color dots,” a release said.

The item, which sold for nearly $50 apiece in Hanna Andersson retail stores, catalogs and website between September and November of last year, was available for purchase in Euro children’s sizes 80-150 cm and American sizes 24 months to size 14.

The style number 38310 was written on each robe’s neck tag, fire officials said.

Both children’s items were in violation of flammability standards set by the U.S. Fire Administration.
