Product Recall: H&M Children’s Sleepwear

Product Recall: H&M Children’s Sleepwear

Children want to wear fun and stylish clothing, however this should never be in lieu of their safety.  At Child Safety Store, we put safety first. This is why we need to bring to your attention two styles of fun but dangerous pajamas recently being sold at H&M stores.  Although no injuries were reported, these pajama sets were recalled for not meeting safety standards.

What H&M Children’s Sleepwear Products Were Recalled? 

Two styles of H&M pajamas have been recalled.  Both items are 100 percent cotton knit children’s long-sleeved top and pant sets. 

First is a set of two tops – one pink shirt has a screen-printed dog’s face with 3d ears extending from it; the other is a gray shirt with a pink bow trimmed neckline and a pink heart on the left chest.  Both tops are being recalled.  The set also comes with long pink polka-dot pants, which are not recalled. This set retailed for $29.99.

The second recalled style is a white long-sleeved top with a screen-printed cat’s face and two 3D ears.  This top came with long white polka dot pants however, just like the first pajama style, only the top is being recalled. This set retailed for $14.99.

Both items were sold in sizes two through 10.

Why Were These H&M Pajamas Recalled?

These items are being recalled because they “don’t meet the flammability standards for children’s sleepwear.”  This presents a potential burn injury to the children who are wearing them.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, these flammability standards are meant to protect children from burns. They require that “children’s sleepwear must be flame-resistant and must self-extinguish if a flame from a candle, match, lighter or a similar item causes it to catch fire.”

What to Do if You Have These Pajamas

Customers who have these sleepwear sets should stop wearing the tops and return them to H&M.  In return, customers will receive a full refund.  On top of that, they will also receive a $20 H&M gift card. Good for H&M – that’s going above and beyond!  Customers do not need to return the pajama bottoms, as they are not being recalled.
