Limited Too Inc. Announces Recall of Children's Fleece Robes

Limited Too Inc., of Columbus, Ohio, is voluntarily recalling approximately 17,600 girls' fleece robes. The robes fail to meet federal flammability standards for children's-sized sleepwear. The standards require sleepwear, including robes, to be flame resistant, and if the garment ignites, the flame must self-extinguish. Failure to meet the flammability standards presents a risk of serious burn injuries to children.

The robes involved in this recall are available in girl's sizes 7 through 14. The robes are 100 percent polyester fleece, and made in violet, teal and plaid. The front wrap robes have shawl collars and a tie belt. Some of the garments have matching satin trim around the front opening and collar. The robes are labeled "Limited Too" . . . "100% Polyester" . . . "Made in Sri Lanka." Limited Too stores nationwide sold the robes from September 1998 through December 1998 for between $60 and $64.

Parents should immediately stop their children from wearing these robes. Return these robes to any Limited Too store for a refund of the full retail price or exchange. For more information about this recall, consumers should call Limited Too at (800) 934-4497 between 8:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. EDT Monday through Friday. Consumers also can write to the company at 3885 Morse Road, Columbus, OH 43219.
