Hazard identified

Health Canada's sampling and evaluation program has determined that this products does 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 Mode Choc nor Health Canada has received reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of this product.
