Serious warnings to parents for Australian children's pajamas that can REPLACE FIRE at any time because they are flammable
- Research determined that the child's nightwear was flammable and could catch fire
- NSW Fair Trading found that some items of clothing were too dangerous to be sold in stores
- The investigation said that nightwear was sold without fire hazard labels
Serious warnings were given to Australian parents after an investigation revealed that children's pajamas were so flammable that they could catch fire.
The New South Wales Department of Fair Trading started the investigation and discovered that the synthetic nightwear was sold without fire hazard labels.
A total of 500 clothing items from 40 different stores in western Sydney were found to be flammable, while some were found to be too dangerous to be sold.
During a video demonstration, a doll with flammable pajamas & # 39; s was shown next to a heater – seconds later he burst into flames.
& # 39; You can just imagine it as a parent, if you have turned your head for a few minutes and something like this happens, your child may suffer serious burns, & # 39; Valerie Griswold told NSW Fair Trading. Today.
Mrs. Griswold said the clothing was often imported by smaller retailers who then sold them without warning labels and defied the NSW legislation.
Nightwear in Australia must have labels that warn of fire hazards that fall into four categories.

The seized pajamas were in the highest category, meaning they were too flammable to wear.
& # 39; Every piece of sleepwear sold in NSW must have a fire hazard label and absolutely none of these have a fire label on it, & # 39; said Mr. Griswold.
The department warns parents to only buy nightwear with fire hazard labels and give priority to buying clothing with natural fibers such as wool and cotton.
& # 39; This is the kind of situation in which the prize should not play a role in what you present to your children when they & # 39; went to sleep at night, & Mrs. Griswold said.
