Children’s clothing recalled due to ‘risk of burns’

Children’s bathrobes sold on Walmart’s website were recalled because they weren’t made to keep up federal flammability standards. The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission warns that bathrobes pose a “burn” hazard to children. The bathrobes were made in China for the Richie House brand.

The recall involves Richie House’s “A Memory In” brand pink children’s bathrobes made of 100% polyester, according to the CPSC announcement of June 23. These are long sleeve robes with two front pockets and side seam belt loops with matching belts. They were available in children’s sizes 5, 6, 8, 10, 12 and 14. The seam label reads “100% Polyester”, “Excluding Trims”, FPU Fabric Product Unit Number NO. AM003, and GPU clothing production unit number NO. AM003-1 printed on it. The dresses were available on Walmart.com between March 2021 and March 2022 for $22 to $28.

Consumers should no longer allow their children to wear the bathrobes and should contact Richie House for a refund. They can be reached by phone at 855-748-6862 or by email at [email protected] Richie House too posted a recall notice on its website. Consumers should include a photo of the destroyed dress and an image of the side seam tag in email requests for full refunds. Walmart and Richie House are also contacting shoppers directly.

This is the latest recall involving children’s clothing that may pose a burn hazard. In early June, Target recalled children’s pajamas sold under the Cat & Jack brand that featured a unicorn design and “Dream Away” printed on the shirt. The garments were sold between October 2021 and March 2022. Like the Richie House robes, these pajamas did not meet “federal flammability standards for children’s sleepwear, posing a burn hazard to children”, said the CPSC.

Kids Tales, a children’s clothing brand sold on Amazon.com, recalled pajamas designed for toddlers in various prints for the same violation of flammability standards, according to a announces that the CPSC published on June 30. The garments were sold exclusively on Amazon.com between November 2021 and April 2022. The garments were made in China. Consumers can contact Kids Tales at [email protected] for a recall and should include photos of the destroyed clothing.
