A children's nightgown has been recalled by its manufacturer due to flammability concerns.

The recall by Smocked Threads by Cecil & Lou includes its girl's 100 percent cotton tunic nightgowns. The nightgowns fail to meet federal flammability standards for children's sleepwear, posing a risk of burn injuries to children. The company believes that about 65 nightgowns are potentially dangerous.

The recalled items feature a pink and white checkered pattern with white piping trim in sizes 12 months to eight. The nightgowns have buttons on the center front and on each cuff at the wrist and a pocket on the left side of the chest. C&L Smocked Threads by Cecil and Lou is printed on a neck label.

Consumers could purchase the product online at Cecil & Lou's website from January 2016 through June 2016 for about $23.

Owners should immediately take the recalled nightgowns away from children and return them to the firm for a full refund, including shipping, or a merchandise credit of $23. Cecil & Lou is contacting all known purchasers directly.

No incidents or injuries have been reported in connection with the affected nightgowns.
