WASHINGTON, D.C. –Target is recalling more than half-a-million children's two-piece pajama sets because the clothing can pose a burn hazard to children.

Target, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, announced the voluntary recall of about 560,000 sets of children's two-piece pajama sets Monday.

The children's cotton or cotton/fleece pajamas sets fail to meet the federal flammability standards for children's sleepwear, because they do not meet the tight-fitting sizing requirements, and pose a burn hazard to children, according to the recall. No injuries have been reported.

The pajama sets were sold at Target stores nationwide and online at target.com from August 2012 through November 2012 for between $8 and $13.

The pajama sets may be returned to any Target store for a full refund.

The recall involves Target Circo and Xhilaration children's cotton or cotton/fleece two-piece pajama sets.

They were sold in infant and toddler sizes 12M, 2T, 3T, 4T and 5T, and in girls and boys sizes XS, S, M, L and XL.

There are a variety of colors and designs, including stars, dots, skulls, peace signs, cats, owls, footballs and camouflage.

The item number is located on a tag on the shirt's side seam and on the pants at the waist. A tag printed on the neck of the pajamas states “Circo” or “Xhilaration”, “Wear snug-fitting not flame resistant” and the item number. The pajamas were also sold with a yellow hangtag that states, “For child's safety, garment should fit snugly. This garment is not flame resistant. Loose-fitting garment is more likely to catch fire.”
