Girl's dresses and dress and trouser sets recalled

On August 17 2010 there are various children's dresses and daywear sets recalled by Health Canada.

Which items are recalled?

The clothes recalled are certain styles of children's dresses and daywear (dress and trouser) sets distributed by Kids Energy Inc. The daywear sets were distributed under the brand name, "Malin Calin".

Check for the recalled styles are all dresses and daywear sets that have decorative fabric flowers attached with pins. They come in various colours and are available in sizes ranging between 0 to 24 months and S/M/L/XL.

You can identify the recalled items by the style number YM-2003 and the marking CA 45878 for the daywear (dresses and trousers). The recalled dresses can be identified by the following style numbers: 3171,3253, 3223, 3192,3231and 3229.

Why have these dresses and dress and trouser sets been recalled? What is the danger?

Health Canada has determined that the decorative fabric flowers attached with pins may become detached from the dresses, releasing the flowers and exposing the sharp point of the pins, posing choking and laceration hazards to young children.

Health Canada has had one complaint where a decorative fabric flower from a daywear set was found in a child's mouth. No injuries were reported as a result of the incident.

What should I do?

You should immediately remove the decorative flowers from the dresses and dispose of the flowers including pins to eliminate the hazard. Or you can return the dresses and daywear sets to the place of purchase for a full refund with proof of purchase. For more information, you may contact Kids Energy at 1-514-382-4401.
