Products manufactured in China according to substandard controls may inadvertently cause extensive injury to children particularly when flammable materials are found in clothing, says Alabama liability attorney Keith T. Belt .
About 1,750 units of children’s Petit Lem Lounge Pajamas, which were manufactured in China; imported by Group Lemur Inc., of Montréal, Québec; and sold at specialty children’s stores and websites from January 2009 to November 2009 for about $30, have been recalled. The pajamas fail to meet the federal flammability standards for children’s sleepwear and pose a risk of burn injury to children. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to date, no incidents or injuries have been reported.
The Petit Lem-brand pajamas are a two-piece, cotton shorts and short-sleeved sleepwear set that are sold in sizes 2 to 12. The pajamas are blue with flowers, white with flowers and dots, yellow with umbrellas, or pink with butterflies and fairies. The words “Petit Lem Lounge” are printed at the inside neck of the shirt.
The firm advises that children stop wearing the recalled Petit Lem pajamas immediately and consumers return them to the store where purchased or to Group Lemur for a refund, exchange, or store credit.
