Local fire officials are notifying area residents of the U.S. Fire Administrationâ€™s recent recall on two particular childrenâ€™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 Childrenâ€™s Pajamas “fail to meet the federal flammability standards for childrenâ€™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 childrenâ€™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 childrenâ€™s sizes 80-150 cm and American sizes 24 months to size 14.
The style number 38310 was written on each robeâ€™s neck tag, fire officials said.
Both childrenâ€™s items were in violation of flammability standards set by the U.S. Fire Administration.
