Retailer Target is recalling about 560,000 two-piece pajama sets because they do not meet the tight-fitting sizing requirements, poseing a burn hazard. The cotton or cotton fleece sets were sold in infant and toddler sizes 12M, 2T, 3T, 4T and 5T, and in girls and boys sizes XS, S, M, L and XL in a variety of colors and designs, including stars, dots, skulls, peace signs, cats, owls, footballs, and camouflage.
According to a release issued by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the item number is located on a tag on the shirt's side seam and on the pants at the waist. A tag printed on the neck of the pajamas states "Circo" or "Xhilaration," "Wear snug-fitting not flame resistant" and the item number. The pajamas were also sold with a yellow hangtag that states, "For child's safety, garment should fit snugly. This garment is not flame resistant. Loose-fitting garment is more likely to catch fire."
No injuries have been reported about the pajamas that have been sold exclusively at Target stores nationwide and online at target.com from August 2012 through November 2012 for between $8 and $13.
The CPSC recommends that consumers take the recalled pajamas away from their children and return them to Target for a full refund.
