Hazard identified

The recalled sleepwear has cotton ruffles and/or other 3-D decorative features (such as bunny ears attached to the feet) that do not meet the flammability requirements for children’s sleepwear under Canadian Law.

Such decorative features can come in contact with ignition sources such as stove elements, candles, and matches, and once ignited will burn rapidly, posing a burn hazard to children.

Neither Health Canada nor The Children’s Place have received reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of the affected products in Canada or the United States.

Approximately, 33,000 units of the recalled products were sold in the United States.
