Five styles of Ganz brand children’s sleepwear
This recall involves five styles of Ganz brand children’s sleepwear sold as one piece sleepers. All recalled products are made from 100% cotton. The item number can be found on the label sewn in to the inside of the left leg of the sleeper.
|ER44924||GIRL CAMO SLEEPER||0-6581003283-2|
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 Ganz has received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of the sleepwear listed above.
For information on what makes safe sleepwear, visit the Healthy Canadians children's sleepwear page.
Approximately 729 of the recalled sleepers were sold in Canada.
Time period sold
The recalled products were sold from May 2015 to October 2016.
Place of origin
Manufactured in China.
Studio One Corp. (Dongguan)
