Diana & Karine polo pyjamas

Product description

This recall involves Diana & Karine 2-piece polo pyjamas for girls identified by styles 69424 (ice cream print) and 69464 (monkey on a scooter print). The sleepwear is made of 100% cotton and has CA number 32071.

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 Les Modes Ameco Paradisio Apparel Inc. has received any 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 3,500 units of the recalled products were sold in Canada.

Time period sold

The recalled products were sold from August 2012 to June 2014.

Manufactured in India.

Please note that the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act prohibits recalled products from being redistributed, sold or even given away in Canada.
