Affected products

Caluby brand boy’s sleepwear code 1166

Product description

This recall involves Caluby brand boy's sleepwear sold as a 2-piece pyjama set.  The affected sleepwear is blue and red with a large image of a space-alien face on the shirt and cartoon images of space aliens on the pants. The set is made from 33% cotton and the code 1166 can be found on the inside tag.

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 Mini Kids Inc. has received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of this sleepwear.

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

Approximately 12 of the recalled products were distributed by Mini Kids Inc., Vaughan, ON, Canada. However, the exact number sold is unknown as the product may have been sold at other locations.

Time period sold

The recalled products were sold from July to October 2016.

Place of origin

Manufactured in China.
