Bella Bliss, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), is recalling an estimated 2,300 children’s Henley pima cotton pajamas, which violate federal children’s sleepwear flammability standards. As a result, these pajamas present an increased risk of fire-related child injuries.
The recalled pajamas were sold as a two-piece set in sizes 2 through 12, and are pink, blue, white, or red. The “Bella Bliss” brand name may be found on the neck tag. They were sold for between $48 and $58 at specialty clothing retailers and online retailers, as well as the Bella Bliss online store and catalog, from January 2008 to June 2011. Children should stop wearing the pajamas immediately, and they should be returned to the retailer from where the pajamas were purchased for an exchange, store credit, or refund. Consumers may call Bella Bliss at (866) 846-5295 for more information.
It is imperative that children’s product manufacturers, whether they produce pajamas or toys, take special care to adhere to all federal safety regulations. According to the Federal Code of Regulations (CFR), children’s pajamas must comply with certain flammability standards. To determine whether the pajamas “pass,” they are subjected to the following test:
- Pajamas are vertically suspended, one at a time, in a specially prescribed cabinet.
- Each set of pajamas is exposed to a standard flame for a standard length of time along its bottom edge.
- The char length is measured to determine whether the pajama is in violation of the flammability standard or passes. Generally, if the average char length exceeds seven inches, or if the total char length exceeds 10 inches, it is a violation.
A consumer product manufacturer that does not produce its products in accordance with federal safety standards endangers the health and well-being of consumers.
