Mini Boo Bamboo Playsuits
This recall involves the Mini Boo Bamboo Playsuits. This product is a one-piece sleeper with a fold-over mitten and slipper design at the hands and feet. It comes in 5 different colours in 2 sizes: 6-9 months (7-22 lbs) and 9-12 months (22-27 lbs). The colors are Noble Blue, Barely Blush, Wild Current, Woodlands, Sequoia Bark.
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.
As of April 2, 2019, the company has received no reports incidents or injuries in Canada.
