Flammable Girl's Nightshirts Recalled by the William Carter Co.

Girls nightshirt recallMorrow, 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.
