This recall involves TL Care Organic Newborn Robes in size 0 - 9 months. These robes are made of 100% cotton.
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 20, 2016, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada.
For information on what makes safe sleepwear, visit the Healthy Canadians children's sleepwear page.
Approximately 14 of the recalled products were sold in Canada at buybuyBaby stores.
Time period sold
The recalled products were sold from July to December 2016.
Place of origin
Manufactured in China.
