Product Recall

RETAILER Big W has recalled urgently 27 styles of boys' and girls' sleepwear incorrectly labelled as having a low fire danger.

Fabric tests showed the styles, from the Pink Sugar and Bed Bugs Girls Single Nighties range and the Selected Sleepwear Nite Club Boys Nightwear range, failed flammability standards.

The clothes were found to ignite and burn more quickly than allowed under the "low fire danger" tag.

Parents are urged to check their children's sleepwear, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission said.

Big W is offering a full refund for items from the affected range, which have since been pulled from the shelves.
