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 KB Designs nor Health Canada has received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of these products.

For information on what makes safe sleepwear, visit the Healthy Canadians children's sleepwear page.

Time period sold
