Thousands of children’s robes sold on Amazon.com have been recalled because of a serious burn hazard.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) raised concerns about the products and said they do not meet flammability standards set for children’s sleeping materials.

According to a report on Newsweek, the robes were recalled for posing a risk of burn injuries to children, the CPSC said. No injuries have been reported as a result of these recalled products.

Details of the Burn Hazard Recall

The recall covers about 3,500 robes in total ranging in sizes from 3T to 12 that were sold through Amazon by Chinese brand HulovoX, but have now been discovered to carry a burn hazard. Each robe was sold for about $30 between January and May 2021.

The robes are made from 100% micro-polyester material and are described as having long sleeves, a fabric belt, and buttons. Some of the robes have additional features described by CPSC as “unicorn décor” complete with a hood to make it look like a unicorn with horn ears and a fuzzy mane.

All of the robes that are part of this recall are brightly colored. Some are tie-dye while the others have a rainbow pattern. All of the robes have a label sewn in at the neck. Customers who bought these robes from HulovoX through Amazon are urged to return them in exchange for a refund.

Children should stop using the burn hazard robes right away, CPSC officials say. Amazon will reach to customers to arrange for them to receive prepaid mailers to return the robes. Consumers can also contact HulovoX to request a postage prepaid mailer to return the robes for a full refund, the CPSC states.

Product Liability Issues

If you or a loved one has been injured by a dangerous or defective product, such as these burn hazard robes, it is important to understand that you have legal rights. You may be able to file a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer seeking compensation for damages such as medical expenses, lost income, hospitalization, cost of rehabilitation, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.

In some cases, consumers may also be able to band together and file a class-action lawsuit against the manufacturer of dangerous or defective products. An experienced product defect lawyer can help injured victims and their families better understand their legal rights and options.
