Children's bathrobes

Product description

This recall involves the Lazy One Brown Bear children's bathrobe, identified by model number BR077.  The robes are made of 100% polyester and come in sizes youth small, youth medium, youth large and youth x-large.

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 Lazy One has received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of these bathrobes.

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

Number sold

Approximately 880 of the recalled products were sold in Canada by various retailers.

Time period sold

The recalled products were sold from July 2010 to June 2014.

Place of origin

Manufactured in China.
