On July 25, popular clothing brand H&M recalled about 9,000 units of childrens’ pajama sets after it was discovered that the pajamas don’t meet federal flammability standards for children’s sleepwear. This failure poses a serious risk of burn injuries or even death to children.
The H&M Sleepwear recall involves two styles of 100% cotton knit, long sleeve top and pant pajama sets for children. The sets were sold in sizes 2-10 and featured grey, white, and pink coloring, screen printing including hearts or dog’s faces, and 3D fabricated dog ears. Two product codes are included in the recall; 0494860 and 0537645. The code can be found on the wash/care label inside the garment.
The pajamas were sold at H&M brick and mortar stores, as well as online at www.HM.com, from July 2018 to May 2019 for between $14.99 and $24.99.
Consumers who purchased these pajamas should immediately remove the dangerous sleepwear from their child’s wardrobe and contact H&M for a full refund, plus a $20 gift card. Fortunately, no injures have been reported at this time.
