Affected products

Betty Boop 2-piece girl’s pyjamas

Product description

This recall involves Betty Boop children’s pyjamas from size 8 to 13. The sleepwear is made of 100% cotton. It is a 2-piece pink pyjama with printed hearts and Betty Boop. 

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 4283147 Canada Inc. has received reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of this sleepwear.

Number sold

Approximately 549 units of the recalled pyjamas were sold in Canada.

Time period sold

The recalled pyjamas were sold from May 2012 to February 2013.

Place of origin

Manufactured for Matalan Retail Ltd, United Kingdom
