Recently, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Gabiano Collection, issued a voluntary recall of about 6000 pajamas which are more fully described below. There are photo images of the pajamas as well if you click on the word recall in the prior sentence you can see what the recalled sleepwear looks like. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.
This recall involves all styles of boys and girls 100 percent cotton pajamas, including sets (tops and bottoms), one-piece suits and gowns in a variety of colors and designs in sizes 2 through 14. “Gabiano” is printed on a tag sewn into the center back neckline of the tops and gown and at the center back of the bottoms. This recall includes style numbers GB201, GB204, GB205, GB207, GB208, GB213, GB215, GB220, GB225, GB230, GB245, GB250, GB260, GB275, GB2001, GB2002, GB2011, GB2012, GB2021, GB2022, GB2031, GB2032, GB2041, GB2042, GB3001 and GB3011. The style number is only printed on the sales tag and does not appear on the garments.

I have recent experience with a major case involving a residential fire and catastrophic burns to children, including lives lost. In this case our experts contended the injuries and deaths were caused by the unsafe acts of others, including makers of unsafe smoke detectors. These cases can be tragic for families and can result in the need for resources for a lifetime of care for children. If you have question about such a case please feel free to call me 202-822-1875 or email me at email@example.com.
