CPSC, Limited Too Inc. Announce Recall of Children's Satin Sleepwear

CPSC, Limited Too Inc. Announce Recall of Children's Satin SleepwearWASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Limited Too Inc., of Columbus, Ohio, is voluntarily recalling about 390,000 children's satin pajama sets. The pajamas fail to meet federal flammability standards for children's sleepwear. The standards require sleepwear to be flame resistant, and if the fabric ignites, the flame must self-extinguish. Failure to meet the flammability standards presents a risk of serious burn injuries to children.

Limited Too has not received any reports of injuries from these pajama sets. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury.

The satin pajama sets involved in this recall are available in sizes 6 through 14. The pajamas are woven, 100 percent polyester with a satin finish. The garments are two-piece pullover or front-button styles with sleeveless, short or long sleeved tops and bottoms, available in a variety of colors and patterns. The sleepwear is labeled "made in Hong Kong," "Macau," "China" or "Sri Lanka."

Limited Too stores nationwide sold the pajamas from December 1995 through July 1998 for about $15 to $39.

Parents should immediately stop their children from wearing these pajama sets and return them to a Limited Too store for a full refund. For more information about this recall, consumers should call Limited Too at (800) 934-4497 between 8:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. EDT Monday through Friday. Consumers also can write to the company at 3885 Morse Road, Columbus, OH 43219.

This recall involves only 100 percent polyester, woven satin sleepwear sold from December 1995 through July 1998. All other sleepwear sold prior to these dates and sleepwear currently being offered by Limited Too is not subject to this recall.
