Hazard identified

Health Canada's sampling and evaluation program has determined that the recalled 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. Once ignited, the sleepwear burns rapidly and can cause severe burns to large areas of the child’s body. For this reason, cotton is not permitted in loose-fitting sleepwear.

Neither Health Canada nor KDX Eurostile has received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of these products.

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