Amazon Recall: 2,000 Kids Robes Pose Burn Risk

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has recalled another children’s clothing item from Amazon.

The children’s robes, imported by BTPEIHTD, a China-based Amazon seller, and sold exclusively on the e-commerce giant’s popular platform, fail to meet the federal flammability standards for children’s sleepwear, posing a risk of burn injuries to wearers.

About 2,000 units were recalled on Feb. 2. The 100 percent polyester robes have a sewn-in side seam belt, a hood, two functional front pockets and may have been sold with matching slippers. The made-in-China robes were sold in sizes 3T through 14 years in black, gray, rose, pink, white, dinosaur, blue and green. They were sold on Amazon from August 2020 through June 2022 for between $16 and $25.

Customers should immediately take the recalled robes away from children, stop using them and contact BTPEIHTD for a full refund. Consumers who purchased the robes will be asked to destroy the garments by cutting them in half and email BTPEIHTD a photo of the destroyed garment in order to receive a full refund of the purchase price. BTPEIHTD and Amazon are contacting all known purchasers directly. No injuries have been reported so far, the CPSC said.

Children’s garments have continued to pose safety risks in recent months.
