"Esleep Juniors" Robes for Girls Fail Flammability
JERSEY 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
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.
