Hazard identified

Health Canada's sampling and evaluation program has determined that these bath robes 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 January 19, 2017, the company has not received any reports of incidents or injuries. 

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