Children’s Robes Sold As Sleepwear Recalled


If you recently purchased a robe for your child, be sure to inspect the tag before you let him sleep in it. In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CSPC), Federated Department Stores based out of Cincinnati, Ohio is recalling up to 50,000 children’s robes sold as sleepwear, rather than loungewear.
The robes being recalled do not meet federal flammability standards, which require sleepwear (including robes) to be flame resistant. If the garment ignites, the flame must self-extinguish to meet the guidelines.

The recalled robes are 100 percent cotton terry cloth and are distributed under the brand names Aegean, Jr. By Monarch, b kids, Baby Monarch, Charter Club and Club Room. The robes have two front patch pockets and are a wrap style with waist belt and hood. They were sold in girls and boys sizes 12 months to 14 in sizes S, M, L, and XL, in a variety of colors and prints.

The robes were sold at Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s, Burdines, Goldsmith’s, The Bon Marche, Rich’s and Lazarus from July 1995 through January 2000 for about $20 to $50.
Parents should stop their children from wearing these robes immediately and return the garment to the store where purchased for a full refund. Consumers may call Federated Department Stores at (800) 364- 6190 for additional information.
