Limited Too Inc. Recalls Children's Fleece Robes

Limited Too Inc. Recalls Children's Fleece RobesColumbus, OH (SafetyAlerts) - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Limited Too Inc. is voluntarily recalling approximately 17,600 girls' fleece robes. The robes fail to meet federal flammability standards for children's-sized sleepwear. The standards require sleepwear, including robes, to be flame resistant, and if the garment 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 robes. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury.

The robes involved in this recall are available in girl's sizes 7 through 14. The robes are 100 percent polyester fleece, and made in violet, teal and plaid. The front wrap robes have shawl collars and a tie belt. Some of the garments have matching satin trim around the front opening and collar. The robes are labeled "Limited Too" . . . "100% Polyester" . . . "Made in Sri Lanka."

Limited Too stores nationwide sold the robes from September 1998 through December 1998 for between $60 and $64.

Parents should immediately stop their children from wearing these robes. Return these robes to any Limited Too store for a refund of the full retail price or exchange. 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.

Robes in blue and ivory and robes above size 14 (junior sizes) are not subject to this recall.

In September 1998, CPSC and Limited Too announced a recall of about 390,000 children's satin pajama sets. These pajamas also failed to meet federal flammability standards for children's sleepwear. Limited Too has not received any reports of injuries from these pajamas.

These recalled pajamas are woven, 100 percent polyester pajama sets with a satin finish sold in sizes 6 through 14. They are two-piece pullover or front-button styles with sleeveless, short or long sleeved tops, 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 these 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 or contact Limited Too at the above phone number or address.
