Hazard identified

These infant sleepers 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 April 30, 2019, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada.

Number sold

Approximately 96,286 units of the affected product were sold in Canada.
