Why are the pajamas being recalled?

Under federal standard for the flammability of children’s sleepwear, all children's sleepwear garments sold in sizes larger than nine months must be either flame resistant or tight-fitting.  The design of our pajamas in sizes 12M+ do not meet flammability standards; specifically they do not fit snug enough to the body and could pose a risk of burn injuries in the event of a fire. This is a standard specifically for pajamas in sizes 12M+, and does not affect our infant pajamas or any other Paper Cape items. Here at Paper Cape, we take matters of consumer safety very seriously. We want to assure you that no injuries have been reported, and this action is the result of a regular product review. 

Have any incidents been reported? 

No safety incidents have been reported.

Which styles does this apply to?

This applies to our classic long sleeve pajama sets (sizes 2T - 12Y) and classic footless pajama onesies (sizes 12m, 18M) in all colorways.  It does not apply to our infant footies in sizes 3M, 6M and 9M or any other Paper Cape items.

Which sizes does this apply to?

This applies to sizes greater than 9M (12M, 18M, 2T, 3T, 4T, 5T, 6Y, 8Y, 10Y, and 12Y).  Our baby pajama footies in sizes 3M, 6M, and 9M are compliant and not part of the recall.

Will I get a refund?

Yes, we will offer refunds in store credit for the original purchase price plus 10% once we receive documentation from you (i.e., photos or video) showing the destroyed garment.  You can send refund requests and documentation to

How do I destroy the garment?

You can destroy the garment by cutting the classic pajama set or the footless pajama onesie in half. Once the garment is destroyed, you can send a photo of it to to receive your full refund. 

What if the pajamas are worn/washed?

That’s okay! We will still take the product back. 

Will you fix the pajamas and re-release them?

We're working on it.  We'll release a compliant version of our pajama sets at the end of this month.  It will be in the same customer favorite pima cotton and some of your favorite prints (yes, including trucks :)).  We can't wait to show you.
