Little Giraffe is recalling 2,000 children's robes because they violate the federal flammability standard.

Clothing that violates this standard poses higher risks of burn injuries to the wearer.

The affected pieces of clothing include Luxe Satin children's long-sleeved robes, which were sold in pink, blue, and cream. They are made of 43 percent acetate and 57 percent rayon with a satin outer shell and made of 100 percent polyester microfiber inside. The robes were sold in sizes one (XS-S/4-6 years), two (MD-LG/6-8 years), and three (XL-XXL/8-10 years). They also have two belt loops on each side with an unattached belt, and printed on a seam label inside are lot number 21706-DFR001 and the phrase Not Intended for Sleepwear.

The robes were sold across the country at children's specialty stores as well as online at Little Giraffe's official website from November 2012 until March 2017. They cost roughly $100.

Although there have been no injuries or incidents reported in connection with this recall, consumers are nevertheless urged to take the affected robes away from children right away and to contact the company for a full refund.
