Girl's Nightshirts Recalled by the William Carter Co.

The William Carter Co. (Carter's), of Morrow, Ga., is voluntarily recalling about 1,000 girl's nightshirts. The nightshirts, which fail to meet federal children's sleepwear flammability standards, could ignite easily and present a serious risk of burn injuries in violation of the Federal Flammable Fabrics Act.

The recalled nightshirts have long sleeves, and were sold in sizes small (4-5 year), medium (6-7 year), large (8-10 year) and, x-large (12-14 yr.). They are made with 100 percent polyester fabric with a pattern of brown bears wearing pink pajamas and the words "p.j. bear" printed on a white background. Identification code "GPU CF79761" and "Carter's" are printed on a label sewn into the collar. Carter's, department and specialty stores sold these pajamas nationwide from May 2000 through August 2000 for between $10 and $13.

Take these nightshirts away from children immediately, and call Carter's toll-free at (888) 339-2129 anytime for instructions on returning the nightshirts for a refund and a $15 Carter's gift certificate. Consumers also can visit the firm's web site at
