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.
As of November 29th, the company has received no reports of consumer incidents in Canada, and no reports of injuries.
For information on what makes safe sleepwear, visit the Healthy Canadians children's sleepwear page.
Approximately 574 units of the affected products were sold in Canada at Winners, Marshalls and HomeSense.
Time period sold
The recalled products were sold from February 2016 to November 2016.
Place of origin
Manufactured in China.
60 Standish Court

Please note that the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act prohibits recalled products from being redistributed, sold or even given away in Canada.
