Children's robe safety recall

Effective November 17, 2010 Health Canada has recalled Roupillon-Brand Childrens' Robes.

This recall involves hooded childrens' robes sold under the brand name "Roupillon". These robes are blue or pink and made of 100% polyester. There are two front pockets and a crown embroidered on the left chest area.

The robes have style number Y62TE.QE, SKU number 158251 and CA 34937 printed on the hang tag on the inside of the sleepwear.

What is the danger?

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

Children's sleepwear that is loose-fitting or that has loose-edges can contact ignition sources such as candles, matches and stove elements 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.

Neither Health Canada nor Le Groupe Boyz Inc. has received reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of this sleepwear.

What should I do?

You should immediately take the recalled sleepwear away from children and return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

For more information, consumers may contact Le Groupe Boyz Inc. at 1-514-858-6160.

How many were sold and where?

1,135 units of the recalled robes were distributed and sold exclusively at L'Aubainerie stores in Quebec from June 2010 to October 2010. These robes were manufactured in China and imported by Le Groupe Boyz Inc. of Montreal, Quebec.
