Target has just released a voluntary recall on several items of children’s sleepwear, saying they do not meet the federal flammability guidelines.

This recall involves Target Circo and Xhilaration children’s cotton or cotton/fleece two-piece pajama sets. They were sold in infant and toddler sizes 12M, 2T, 3T, 4T and 5T, and in girls and boys sizes XS, S, M, L and XL. There are a variety of colors and designs, including stars, dots, skulls, peace signs, cats, owls, footballs and camouflage. To see a complete list of item numbers included in this recall, visit the firm’s website. The item number is located on a tag on the shirt’s side seam and on the pants at the waist. A tag printed on the neck of the pajamas states “Circo” or “Xhilaration”, “Wear snug-fitting not flame resistant” and the item number. The pajamas were also sold with a yellow hangtag that states, “For child’s safety, garment should fit snugly. This garment is not flame resistant. Loose-fitting garment is more likely to catch fire.” Consumers should immediately take the recalled pajamas away from children and return them to any Target for a full refund, reads the statement.

The styles are either labeled Circo or Xhilaration and come in a wide array of designs. For a complete list of item numbers–which can be found on the clothing in the shirt’s side-seam or on the waistband of the pants–go here.
