Affected products

Petit Lem Signature romper styles 16SE09L346 and 16SE07L345, sizes 12m, 18m and 24m.

Product description

This recall involves two styles of Petit Lem Signature rompers, 16SE09L346 and 16SE07L345. The affected products are long-sleeved, sleeper-like models without feet and are made from light gray French Terry fabric (100% cotton).  The affected products come in two prints, small triangles or a stars print in shades of blue. The rompers have buttons and a blue pocket on front. Style numbers are shown on the tag.

Hazard identified

Affected products have the appearance of children's sleepwear and can be mistakenly used for sleep. 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 December 9, 2016 Petit Lem has received no 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 88 units of the recalled products were sold in various retail stores across Canada.

Time period sold

The recalled products were sold from February to December 2016.
