L.L. Bean recalled a girls pajama set on Tuesday because it violates the federal flammability standard for children's sleepwear.  Regulated by the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), this flammability standard requires all children's sleepwear to be flame resistant and self-extinguish if it catches fire. While no incidents have been reported, L.L. Bean estimates approximately 800 sets have been sold.

Specifically, this recall is for the polyester jersey knit aurora purple pajama sets that were purchased between June 2013 and September 2013. The set was available in girl's sizes small through extra-large and little girl's sizes small through large.

This $30 pajama set is currently available on the L.L. Bean website and according to the site is "treated for flame resistance" and "meets federal safety requirements for children's sleepwear."

Manufacturers are required to report any violations of the children's sleepwear flammability standard directly to the CPSC. Although this is generally how violations are found, the CPSC also conducts tests on random sampling to monitor the standards. If you're worried about your child's sleepwear meeting standards (or are just concerned about the possibility of chemicals near your little one's skin), we recommended purchasing tight-fitting sleepwear with a tag stating that the item is to be worn snugly in our 2012 investigation. It won't necessarily be be flame resistant, but loose-fitting garments are much more likely to catch fire. And, of course, be sure to follow all manufacturer washing instruction to retain any "flame resistant" qualities in garments.

L.L. Bean is offering a replacement, refund, or store credit for the recalled sets. For more details or to return these pajamas, visit the CPSC website.
