Gap Inc. Announces Recall of Children's Pajamas

Gap Inc., of San Francisco, Calif., is voluntarily recalling about 231,000 children's pajamas sold at Gap and Old Navy stores. The pajama sets fail to meet federal children's sleepwear flammability standards. The standards require sleepwear to be flame-resistant, and if the fabric ignites, the flame must self-extinguish. Failure to meet the flammability standards presents a risk of serious burns to children.

Today's recall announcement is the reissuance of the recall of the pajama sets announced December 2, 1999 by Gap Inc., and includes five additional style pajama sets that were tested and failed the federal flammability standard.

The six different styles of pajamas being recalled are all made with 100 percent polyester fabric. The pajamas have style numbers 353558, 353554, 733002, 733032, 466291 and 674060. The style numbers are located on labels sewn into the side seams or collar of the garments.

GapKids, babyGap, Gap Outlet and Old Navy stores nationwide sold these pajamas from August 1999 through December 1999 for between $20 and $39.
