Apple Park Children’s Loungewear recalled due to violation of Federal Flammability Standard

Apple Park Children’s LoungewearApple Park Children’s Loungewear has been recalled due to a violation of the Federal Flammability Standard which requires clothing to be either snug fitting or flame resistant. Which of these it failed is not listed, so it could just be due to them being baggy as opposed to risking immolation.

Apple Park is offering refunds.

What’s fun to note is that the Consumer Products Safety Commission points you to the Apple Park website recalls section for more information. Their link points you to the CPSC. The short of it is at the moment there is no web way to get more information about the recall, but you can call them up at toll-free at (866) 708-4695 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.

Details from the CPSC:

This recall involves Apple Park children’s 96% viscose and 4% spandex two-piece sets from the Apple Park Bamboo Loungewear Collection. They were sold in children’s sizes 6 months through size 4. The sets consist of a long-sleeve shirt paired with matching full-length pants with elastic waistband. The collar, ankles and wristbands are solid-colored. The sets come in five animal character prints: pink “bunny,” blue “cubby,” white/green “ducky,” violet “lamby” and green “monkey.” “GPU CO815” is printed on sewn labels at the pants waistline and along the shirt’s bottom right side seam.
