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.

As of November 24 2016, the company has received no reports of consumer incidents, and no reports of injuries.

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

Number sold

Approximately 4 of the recalled products were sold in Canada.

Time period sold
