Disney Stores Recall Some Children's Sleepwear


The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a voluntary recall of Baby Einstein Caterpillar Sleepwear and Baby Einstein Duck Sleepwear sold at Disney Stores North America, a unit of Children's Place Retail Stores.

The sleepwear fails to meet the children's flammability standard, posing a risk of burn injury to children.

Only sleepwear in sizes 12 months and 18 months are included in the recall.

The pajamas were sold at Disney Stores nationwide in April 2006 and May 2006 for about $20.

Consumers should stop using the sleepwear and return it to the Disney Store for a refund.

Shares of Children's Place fell this morning and hit a new 52-week low of $49.65. In the
past year, the stock had ranged between $49.95 and $71.81.
