Product description

This recall involves babysoy footies (style number 200) and o soy footies (style number 500) in sizes 6 to 12 months.  The babysoy footies are solid colour with contrasting trim (chocolate/green, blue/brown, purple/brown, pink/purple and pink/brown) and the o soy footies are white with various colour trim and have different images printed on the front.

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 Babysoy 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.

Number sold

Approximately 587 units of the recalled products were sold in Canada at various children’s stores.

Time period sold

The recalled products were sold from January 2010 to May 2014.

Manufactured in China.
