August 17, 2000Flammable Girl's Nightshirts
Recalled by the William Carter Co.
GA (SafetyAlerts) - The William
Carter Co. (Carter's), is voluntarily recalling about 1,000 girl's nightshirts because the
nightshirts fail to meet federal children's sleepwear flammability standards. The garments
could ignite easily and present a serious risk of burn injuries in violation of the
Federal Flammable Fabrics Act.
The recalled nightshirts have long sleeves, and were sold in sizes small (4-5 year),
medium (6-7 year), large (8-10 year) and, x-large (12-14 yr). They are made with 100
percent polyester fabric with a pattern of brown bears wearing pink pajamas and the words
"p.j. bear" printed on a white background. Identification code "GPU
CF79761" and "Carter's" are printed on a label sewn into the collar.
Carter's, department and specialty stores sold these pajamas nationwide from May 2000
through August 2000 for between $10 and $13.
No injuries have been reported.
Consumers should take these nightshirts away from children immediately, and call Carter's
toll-free at (888) 339-2129 anytime for instructions on returning the nightshirts for a
refund and a $15 Carter's gift certificate. Consumers also can visit the firm's web site here.
