Boathouse Youth Flannel Lounge Pants 

Product description

This voluntary recall involves 100% cotton youth flannel lounge pants with a waist drawstring, style number BHA 14308-01. The lounge pants are available in six different colours (blue plaid, grey plaid, purple plaid, red plaid, yellow plaid, and black plaid) and have CA number 55941.

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 Health Canada nor Boathouse Stores has received reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of this sleepwear.

Number sold

Approximately 3,397 units of the recalled lounge pants were sold at Boathouse Stores across Canada.

Time period sold

The recalled lounge pants were sold from October 2012 to February 2013.

Place of origin

Manufactured in China
