How To Tell If Your Child's Woolino Pajamas Were Recalled Due To A Burn Hazard

There's nothing more adorable than babies in footie pajamas. (Well OK, maybe babies in Halloween costumes, or videos of unlikely animal friends, but footie pajamas are definitely up there.) However, one baby pajama brand just issued a very important recall, so you'll want to check your tot's tags, ASAP. Here's how to tell if your child's Woolino pajamas were recalled, so you can make sure that your baby really is sleeping safely, not just soundly.

Woolino, which makes baby sleep products in merino wool, announced that it was voluntarily recalling its footed pajamas in sizes 6-12 Months, 12-18 Months, 18-24 Months, and 2T after realizing that they did not meet the Consumer Product Safety Commission's flammability standards. According to the CPSC's section on children's sleepwear flammability standards:

To protect children from burns, these rules require that children’s sleepwear must be flame resistant and self-extinguish if a flame from a candle, match, lighter or a similar item causes it to catch fire.

Turns out that those cute pajamas were made of a thin merino that wasn't quite up to code, and had the potential to cause burn injuries. Luckily, it seems that the company caught the flaw before any injuries were reported. In the product recall announcement, Woolino stressed, "No baby or child has ever been injured by this product or any other Woolino product." Woolino did not immediately respond to Romper's request for comment.

As ABC News reported, the recalled pajamas were sold at "Pony and Caro Bambino stores nationwide" as well as on online retailers, including, and between May 2015 to November of this year.

No other products were affected by the recall, so if your baby absolutely loves his or her merino Woolino sleeping bag (the company's signature item), there's no need to yank it away. And the only issue with these recalled pajamas was their flammability potential. According to the recall, it's not like there's anything in the fabric itself that's capable of harming your baby, so there's no need to worry about your baby already having been affected without your noticing.

In the recall announcement, Woolino stressed that any parents who were affected by the recall could absolutely get their money back and more, explaining:

We’re sorry. We know it’s a hassle. But we are standing by and will joyfully send you a postage paid return label, and once we receive the return, we will credit you for your purchase. Hey, we'll even throw in a 20% discount code to purchase anything else you like on our site. Because we LOVE you. And your kids. And they deserve the absolute softest, most natural products on planet earth.

So if you've been dressing your little one in the affected footies, simply fill out this form, and Woolino should get right on making sure you get the refund you deserve. Alternatively, if you'd like a more personalized connection, you can email, or call 1-844-882-8080 to talk to a customer service representative.

And if you're bummed to be losing your baby's favorite pajamas, don't worry too much. Woolino writes on the Footie Pajama page that "Sizes 6 months and above are expected to be back in stock in January 2018." Safe to say that, after this recall scare, whatever modified version Woolino debuts next will likely more than meet the flammability requirements.

Pajama recalls are more common than you might think, given how stringent the CPSC's requirements for children are. Just back at the beginning of November, Little Mass pajamas had to recall a whole bunch of their pajamas after flunking the flammability test, as did VIV&LUL, a brand sold exclusively on Amazon.

The rate of recall may be enough to give some parents whiplash, but of course, it's all worth it. After all, parents only sleep well when they know their babies are sleeping safely.
