CPSC Recalls Over 13,000 Kid's Robes Sold on Amazon
In today’s busy parenting world, Amazon has become a go-to for everything from diapers to dresses. But recently, four brand under the retail giant have made headlines after issuing a recall of over 13,000 kid’s robes. Here’s what you need to know.
What kid’s robes are being recalled and why?
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has recalled four separate brands of children’s robes, all sold exclusively by Amazon. Five thousand of the recalled robes were imported by ChildLikeMe, 3,000 by SGMWVB Brand, another 2,000 by BTPEIHD and 350 from Betusline Official Apparel.
In all four notices, the CPSC writes that the “recalled children’s robes fail to meet the federal flammability standards for children’s sleepwear, posing a risk of burn injuries to children.” While no incidents have been reported yet, the commission maintains that parents should immediately stop using the robes.
