"Esleep Juniors" Robes for Girls Fail Flammability Standards

Child Clothing RecalledJERSEY CITY, NJ (SafetyAlerts) - Bentley Lingerie Inc. is recalling more than 30,000 robes that fail to meet federal flammability standards for children's sleepwear, The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced today. The robes are required by federal law 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.

"Esleep Juniors," and "Made in Bangladesh" are written on labels on the collar of these robes. The robes have chest patches showing either a pair of bear cubs or a sleeping puppy. They are made of polyester, either blue or green, and were sold in sizes four through 14. The robes are long-sleeve robes with patch pockets. They have one of the following GPU numbers located on a collar tag: 9816, 9817, 9818, 9885, 9886, 9890 and 9891.

JC Penney stores nationwide sold these robes from July 1998 through April 1999 for about $25.  CPSC and these firms are not aware of any injuries involving these robes. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury.

Consumers should stop using these recalled robes immediately and return them to the store where purchased for a refund. For additional information, consumers should contact Bentley Lingerie at (888) 330-3803 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EDT Monday through Friday.
