Following recent findings that certain pajamas and sleepwear items designed for children fail to meet federal flammability standards, Papa Bear Loungeabouts LLC, of Los Angeles, Calif., along with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, has decided to recall the hazardous garments at once.
According to several news sources, the safety recall involves several different types of pajamas, nightgowns and separate pajama pants sold in both girls and boys sizes 0-6x and 7-14. All items were manufactured and distributed by PapaBear Loungeabouts between January 2004 and December 2011.
The official announcement released by the federal agency reveals that over 10,000 units of these garments could pose serious fire and burn hazards to children. Parents have been properly advised they should refrain from allowing their children to wear the flammable sleepwear.
As a Roseville Personal Injury Lawyer, I urge parents to follow the CPSC’s instructions and encourage all consumers with the recalled items in hands to contact the place of purchase and ask for a full refund. I urge you to never delay to respond to a product recall, especially if it could pose a serious threat to your children. I’ve witnessed similar recalls in the past and know of the dire consequences they entail so don’t hesitate to act fast.
Whenever you or a loved one is ever injured through the use of a recalled and defective consumer product, you may wish to contact a personal injury lawyer in your area to ask about the legal options available to your case.
