A Target pajama recall over a fire hazard was announced today when the Consumer Product Safety Commission discovered that 560,000 two-piece children's pajama sets failed to meet federal flammability standards. The pajamas were sold exclusively to Target stores nationwide and on the target.com website from August 2012 through November 2012.

"The children's cotton or cotton/fleece pajamas sets fail to meet the federal flammability standards for children's sleepwear, because they do not meet the tight-fitting sizing requirements. This poses a burn hazard to children," according to the CPSC.

Fortunately, the pajamas only failed a burn test but did not actually receive any reports of burn injuries to children. That said, the Target pajama recall insists for all consumers to return their pajamas to Target for a full refund.

The company responsible for the pajamas is Makalot Garments Co. Ltd., of Taiwan. The recalled pajamas were made in Vietnam and Cambodia.

According to CPSC, the Target pajama recall involves 560,000 sets of "Circo" and "Xhilaration" branded children's cotton and cotton/fleece blend two-piece products. The sets were sold in infant and toddler sizes 12M, 2T, 3T, 4T and 5T as well as girls and boys sizes XS, S, M, L and XL.

The pajamas are available in a number of colors and graphical designs, including stars, polka dots, pirate skulls, peace signs, cats, owls and Camouflage prints.

To find out whether your Target pajama is among the items involved with the recall, please visit the firm's Product Safety and Recall website. The website will list all Target item numbers to allow consumers to match their pajama's tag, which is located on the shirt side seam and the pant waist.
