Hazard identified

Health Canada's sampling and evaluation program has determined that these products do not meet the flammability requirements for children's sleepwear under Canadian law.

Loose-fitting children's sleepwear can contact ignition sources such as stove elements, candles, and matches more readily than tight-fitting sleepwear, and once ignited will burn rapidly, potentially resulting in severe burns to large areas of the child's body. For this reason, cotton is not permitted in loose-fitting sleepwear.

Neither Health Canada nor Goldtex Textiles has received reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of these products.

Number sold

Approximately 22 of the recalled pyjamas were sold in Canada.

Time period sold

The recalled pyjamas were sold from October 2012 to March 2013 in Canada.
