Hazard identified

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.

As of March 20, 2019, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of this product in Canada.

Number sold

Approximately 82,314 units of the affected products were sold in Canada.

Time period sold

The recalled products were sold from June, 2017 to March, 2019.
