Flammability Standards for Children’s Products

Having children is one of the most amazing experiences. At the same time, it is also one of the most stressful. Keeping your children safe from the various dangers in life is not easy. You can do everything possible to prevent your children from suffering an injury, getting sick, or having someone else hurt them, and still something might go wrong.

There are a number of laws, rules, and regulations in place for children’s products that help reduce the risks of injury. For example, your child’s clothes and bedding must be flame retardant. It is required by law and enforced by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

There have been two pajama recall notices issued recently by the CPSC:

  • Pajama pants recalled by Just Love Fashion for not meeting the flammability standards and posing a burn risk to children – recall number 19-756
  • Girl’s pajama sets recalled by The Company Store for not meeting the flammability standards and posing a burn risk to children – recall number 19-757

Sleepwear flammability standards

Children’s sleepwear must be deemed flame retardant in order for it to hit the shelves of stores in Charlotte and across the country. This is because children are unable to remove themselves from a crib, if they are still in one, when a fire breaks out in the home. Children might also not hear a smoke alarm, or understand the risks associated with the alarm or smell of smoke like an adult would. If a child happens to approach an open flame while in his or her pajamas, the flame retardant in the material could keep the child from sustaining severe burn injuries until help can come.

The requirements for children’s sleepwear include the following:

  • Loungewear, robes, nightgowns and pajamas must be flame retardant
  • All of the above items must be flame retardant if they range in size from nine months to size 14

Flammability standards for other children’s products

There are standards in place regarding flammability when it comes to other children’s products that hit the market. For the most part, any toy or other item that is designed or manufactured for a child aged 14 or younger must undergo flammability testing and be deemed flame retardant. Some examples of products for children that must pass flammability testing include the following:

  • Cribs
  • Strollers
  • Car seats
  • Clothing
  • Toys
  • Recliners
  • Baby gates

Has a recall been issued for your child’s clothing or other item due to issues with flammability? Was your child burned in an accident?
