Affected products

Pepin Children’s Bathrobes sizes 1 year – 6 year

Product description

This recall involves the following bathrobes:

  • A hooded bathrobe made of 100% cotton;
  • Pepin (Fall/Winter 2015) in Little Fog, Faded Pink, Animals;
  • Pepin Muslin (Spring/Summer 2016) in Rabbit White; and
  • Pepin Bee (Fall/Winter 2016) in Ciel (Blue), Nu (Blush), Oursins Print.

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 Leuie has received reports of 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.

Number sold

Approximately 20 of the recalled products were sold in Canada at Leuie in Vancouver, BC.

Time period sold

The recalled products were sold from September 2015 to November 2016.

Place of origin

Manufactured in Portugal.
