Bella Bliss of Lexington, Kentucky, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), is recalling approximately 2,300 sets of children’s Henley pima cotton pajamas due to a violation of federal children’s sleepwear flammability standards. The shortcoming in compliance with the standards poses a fire hazard and increases the risk of burn injury to children.
The recalled cotton pajamas are a two-piece set, sold in sizes 2 through 12, and came in blue, pink, red, or white. The brand name, “Bella Bliss,” is written on the neck tag. They were sold for between $48 and $58 through the Bella Bliss website and catalog, as well as at specialty clothing retailers and online retailers from January 2008 to June 2011.
Children should immediately stop wearing the pajamas, which should be returned to the retailer where purchased for store credit, exchange, or refund. For additional information, consumers may call Bella Bliss at (866) 846-5295.
Federal regulations are understandably strict when it comes to child products and safety standards. According to the Federal Code of Regulations (CFR), children’s pajamas must pass the general flammability testing procedure and requirements in order to be suitable for distribution. If a product is in violation of the federal flammability standards, it poses a significant risk of burn injury.
The manufacturers of consumer products, especially children’s products, have a duty to adhere to federal safety standards. Distributing a product which is in violation of these standards endangers the health and well-being of consumers.
