RECALL: Disney Sleepers

The Disney Store is recalling aboout 200 children's footed pajamas due to a potential burn hazard. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm the company above, today announced a voluntary recall of the Baby Einstein Caterpillar Sleepwear and Baby Einstein Duck Sleepwear. The Disney Stores North America, of California, which is owned, and under a licensing agreement operated, by a subsidiary of The Children’s Place Retail Stores Inc. of Secaucus, N.J.said there were no reported injuries or incidents.

Quack!” printed on the front and duck beaks on the feet. “Baby Einstein” is printed on the back of the sleepwear. “Disney Store” is printed on a tag inside the pajamas. Only sleepwear in sizes 12 months and 18 months is included in this recall. Sleepwear sold in sizes 3, 6, and 9 months is not included in this recall. The sleepers were sold exclusively at Disney Stores nationwide from April 2006 through May 2006 for about $20.
