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 Tea Living has received reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of the affected products.

Number sold

Approximately 75 of the recalled sleepers were sold in Canada.

Time period sold

The recalled sleepers were sold from January to February 2013.

Place of origin

Manufactured in China (3S12717-924 / 3S12717-926 / 3S22711-451) and Thailand (3S22713-385)
