Government Issues Reminder Letter to Pajama Manufacturers
The Consumer Product Safety Commission’s letter was a reminder of the agency’s policies and enforcements regarding children’s sleepwear and the regulations surrounding flammability standards.
Andrew Kameros, director of the Office of Compliance and Field Operations for the CPSC, issued the letter, which reminds manufacturers and importers of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act’s requirements for children’s products, including tracking labels, a certificate of compliance and testing requirements for phthalates, lead content and lead in surface coatings on the product like snaps and zipper pulls.
The recalls included about 1,000 fleece robes by Hanna Andersson that didn’t meet federal flammability standards. They were sold nationwide since September.
The second recall was from Group Lemur and included children’s pajamas sold in 2009.Both items are in our Marketplace with complete details and information on redeeming your product.

Kiddieland Expands April Recall to Include Disney Fairy Trikes
It may be cold and rainy, but the kids won’t stop wanting to go outside this fall. But before playtime, read up on this recall for Disney Fairy plastic tricycles.
The plastic fairy figures protruding from the handlebars can be dangerous if a child falls on them. Kiddieland, the manufacturer, has received one report of a 3-year-old from Ohio injuring herself after falling onto the fairies.
Kiddieland also recalled their Disney Princess trikes in April for the same reason; new models without the figurines, however, are not included in the recall. You can find an incident report from October here.
Disney licensed their brand name to Kiddieland and is not involved in the recall.
Consumers should contact Kiddieland for a free handlebar replacement that includes a cover for the rotating fairy display.
See our marketplace to get the replacement handlebars and for recall details like model numbers and contact information for Kiddieland.
