Klever Kids Recalls About 7,000 Pajamas Due to Flammability Standard Violation - Newsome | Melton Law
  • klever kids sleepwear

Certain products sold in the United States must meet rigorous flammability standards put in place by the CPSC. If these standards are not met, then the CPSC will take action. In January, Mattress Cloud Inc. had to recall approximately 1,400 mattresses because they did not meet the open flame standard for mattresses. Like mattresses, children’s sleepwear must pass tests and be flame resistant and able to self-extinguish if it catches on fire. If not, then it violates federal standards. Last week, Klever Kids addressed a violation of federal flammability standards for children’s sleepwear by recalling approximately 7,000 children’s pajamas and nightgowns.

According to the CPSC, the pajama sets and nightgowns pose a risk of burn injuries to children. No injuries or incidents have occurred due to the recalled pajamas. Some of the recalled apparel are labelled as “flame resistant sleepwear” even though they fail to meet the federal flammability standards for children’s sleepwear.

Manufactured in Peru, the different pajama sets and nightgowns are made with 100 percent Pima cotton and are meant for girls and boys sizes 2 through 8. The pajama sets contain a long-sleeve or short-sleeve shirt and pants that have printed sharks, ballerinas, skeletons, polka dots, paislet or monsters on them. The nightgowns have ballerinas, polka dots, flowers or paisleys printed on them. Each of the garments have neck labels on them that say “KleverKids live {heart} laugh {heart} love.”

The recalled pajama sets and nightgowns were sold in children’s boutiques and specialty stores from September 2012 through March 2013. The pajamas were priced at between $32 and $82. Consumers are urged to take the recalled pajamas away from children and return them to the location where they were purchased for a refund.
