On August 20, 2013, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recalled roughly 7,000 sets of children’s pajamas and nightgowns manufactured by Klever Kids. The CPSC states that the pajamas do not meet federal flammability standards that apply to children’s sleepwear. As a result, the pajamas and nightgowns pose a burn injury risk to children. Consumers are advised to immediately return all pajama sets to Klever Kids for a full refund.

Recalled Children’s Pajamas

The recall includes Klever Kids 100% Pima cotton pajamas that were sold nationwide from September 2012 to March 2013. The recalled pajamas were sold in girls and boys sizes 2 through 8. They include two-piece shirt and pant sets with elastic waistbands. The pajama sets were available with both long and short sleeves. The recalled nightgowns featured short sleeves and a gathered shoulder hem.

Both of the recalled pajama sets were sold in a number of prints, including ballerinas, flowers, pink and white polka dots, paisley with green fabric edging, shark print, blue and black skeletons, and two-toned monster print with navy and blue. The recalled girls’ nightgowns were sold in patterns including ballerinas, flowers, pink and white polka dots, and paisley. The pajamas were sold in clothing boutiques nationwide at prices ranging from roughly $30 to $80.

Consumer Next Steps

Any consumers who purchased any recalled Klever Kids recalled pajamas should immediately stop using them and ensure that they are no longer accessible to children. Consumers are encouraged to contact Klever Kids to receive a full refund for the purchase. Fortunately, there have been no reports of incidents or injuries associated with the pajamas.

Reporting Incidents to the CPSC

The CPSC has continued to request information from consumers regarding any incidents or injuries that occur involving the affected Klever Kids pajamas products. The CPSC requests information regarding the discussed fire hazards, as well as information regarding other potential hazards from the same line of products. Consumers with information are encouraged to visit SaferProducts.gov to share information.

CSPC Children’s Sleepwear Flammability Standards

The CSPC’s federal flammability standards for children’s sleepwear are designed to help protect children from burn injuries. These regulations require that all children’s sleepwear is flame resistant. The sleepwear must self-extinguish in the event that a match, lighter, candle, or similar flame causes it to catch on fire.

Flammability standards cover sleepwear ranging from nine months up to size 14. All sleepwear garments and fabrics must either pass certain flammability tests or meet specified dimensions to be considered “tight-fitting.” The fit of the sleepwear is considered due to the fact that loose garments are more likely to catch fire than tight-fitting sleepwear. To learn more about federal flammability standards, consumers can visit the CPSC.gov.
