Hazard identified

Health Canada's sampling and evaluation program had 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.

As of February 23rd, 2017, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada.

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

Approximately 236 units of the affected products were sold or distributed in Canada, in addition to the 37 units included in the January 2017 recall. The affected products were sold online at Bed, Bath and Beyond Canada and at Amazon Canada.
