Youth lounge pants sold at M&M'S World stores are being recalled for not meeting federal safety guidelines.

The pants fail to meet federal flammability standards for children's sleepwear, posing a risk of burn injury to children.

About 19,000 pairs are affected by the recall.

The youth loungewear pants came in two prints, one with an allover M&M'S character print and the second with an allover M&M'S candy print. Both youth loungewear pants are 100 percent cotton and were sold in youth sizes small through XL. The recalled garments have a label sewn inside the waistband with the product's identification number that includes the last four digits as the date of manufacture in MMYY format. The recalled youth loungewear pants have identification numbers ending in 0711, 0212, 1112, 0313, 0413 or 0713.

They were sold at M&M'S World stores nationwide from July 2011 through November 2014 for about $22.

Parents and caregivers should immediately stop using the recalled lounge pants and return them to M&M'S World for a full refund.
