Target Recalls Half Million Hazardous Pajama Sets
By Jim Donovan: Target is recalling about 560,000 Children’s two-piece pajama sets. The 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.
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.

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”.
The pajama sets were sold exclusively at Target stores nationwide and online at target.com from August 2012 through November 2012 for between $8 and $13.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled pajamas away from children and return them to any Target for a full refund.
