What is the danger?

This recalled sleepwear does not meet the design and flammability requirements for children's sleepwear under Canadian law.

Health Canada's standard is that children's sleepwear that is loose fitting or that has loose edges is potentially dangerous. It can contact ignition sources such as stove elements, candles, and matches more easily 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.

At time of the recall Health Canada nor Effigi Inc. has received reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of these pyjama pants.

What do I do?
You should take the recalled sleepwear away from children and return the items to the place of purchase for a full refund.
