Health Canada's sampling and evaluation program had 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 February 23rd, 2017, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada.
For more information on what makes safe sleepwear, visit the Healthy Canadians children's sleepwear page.
