What are the defects?

The garments do not comply with the mandatory standard for children's sleepwear and limited daywear, AS/NZS 1249:2003 (as amended by regulation) because the "LOW FIRE DANGER" label on the garments was attached to an inner side seam rather than at the neck where it would have been visible from the outside. In addition, the packaging of some of the garments obscured the "LOW FIRE DANGER" label, contrary to the requirements of the mandatory standard.

What are the hazards?

Parents or carers may not see the "LOW FIRE DANGER" label and may be unaware of the fire danger rating for these garments.

What should consumers do?

Consumers who purchased any baby GAP garments with the "LOW FIRE DANGER" label attached to the side seam rather than inside the back neck should return the garments to their nearest GAP Store for a full refund.
