Dunnes Stores recall thousands of children’s pyjamas over suffocation risk

Irish parents have been urgently warned to not use the sets as they can cause cuts or suffocation.

Dunnes Stores has pulled some of its popular children’s pyjama sets from sale due to safety fears.

According to the Irish Sun, the products in question are the Digger, Dino, Mermaid and Unicorn short-sleeved pyjama sets for young children – with a total of 5,941 of the affected products thought to have been sold in the Republic of Ireland.

The reason for the recall is that a fusible layer inserted and applied to the back of the pyjama top may pose a safety risk if not secure on all garments.

The Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC) has urged customers to immediately stop using the product and return it to Dunnes Stores for a full refund.

According to a spokesperson for Dunnes Stores, the style numbers on the affected products are as follows:

  • Style no. 6818137 (Digger short-sleeved pyjama set (6 months – 4 years)
  • Style no. 6818138 (Dino short-sleeved pyjama set (6 months – 4 years)
  • Style no. 6819375 (Mermaid short-sleeved pyjama set (6 months – 4 years)
  • Style no. 6819376 (Unicorn short-sleeved pyjama set (6 months – 4 years)”

Anyone who has bought any of the four sets of pyjamas is urged to stop using them immediately and return them to your local Dunnes Stores for a refund.

The CCPC also advised: “If customers have any further queries in relation to this recall, please email Dunnes Stores at [email protected].”
