Product description

This recall involves mini mioche brand zippy sleeper (sizes 12-18m, 18-24m, 2 years and 4 years) and geo print zippy sleeper (sizes 18-24m, 2 years and 4 years). These sleepers have a single zipper down the middle, come in various colours and prints, and are made of 100% cotton. The size can be found on the inside tag.

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.

The wrist cuffs on the mini mioche brand zippy sleeper (sizes 12-18m, 18-24m, 2 years and 4 years) and geo print zippy sleeper (sizes 18-24m, 2 years and 4 years) exceed the maximum circumference allowed for tight-fitting children's sleepers for those sizes, and are therefore considered loose-fitting children's sleepwear.

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 mini mioche retail inc. has received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of this sleepwear.
