PJ’s Recalled: Violate Flammability Standards | CloudMomPin for later!

Which brands recalled children’s sleepwear?

The biggest one was a recall of about 210,000 boys and girls pull-on lounge pants and girls boxers from Rigo International. Rigo has received one report of a garment catching fire and causing severe burns to the front and back of both legs of a 9-year-old boy. The recalled items are Academy pull-on lounge pants for boys and girls, and boxers for girls. The garments are made of 100% cotton and have elastic or fabric waistbands. The pants and boxers come in a variety of colors and print designs, including guitars, bikes, skates, footballs, baseballs, softballs, soccer balls, volleyballs, deer, zebra, horses, penguins, and leopards. Some clothing may have the words “cheer,” “champs,” “soccer stars,” “peaceful,” “dance,” or “perfect 10” printed on them. For more information and pictures of the CPSC recalled items, visit:
