Hazard identified

Health Canada 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. Once ignited, the sleepwear can burn rapidly and cause severe burns to large areas of the child's body, resulting in shock and sometimes death. Cotton is not permitted in loose-fitting children's sleepwear.

Neither Health Canada nor Amerella/RunNorth Inc. has received any reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of this sleepwear.
