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.  For this reason, cotton is not permitted in loose-fitting sleepwear.

Neither Health Canada nor Baby Aspen has received reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of this sleepwear.

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

Number sold

Approximately 980 of the recalled products were sold in Canada at various locations.

Time period sold

The recalled products were sold from January 2011 to May 2014.

Place of origin

Manufactured in China.
