Nass-girl sleepwear recall

Nass-girl sleepwear is recalled August 4, 2010

A girl's robe robe and nightgown with brand name "Nass Girl" has been recalled by Health Canada. The sleepwear is made of 100% cotton. This robe is hooded, pink or blue in colour and the confirming identity on the sales tag and hang tag on the inside of the sleepwear is HG3478 and UPC 149500000033.

What is the problem

Health Canada has a sampling and evaluation program which has identified that the recalled sleepwear does not meet the design and flammability requirements for children's sleepwear under Canadian law.

Health Canada states, "Children's sleepwear that is loose fitting or that has loose edges 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."

There has not been reports of incidents or injuries related to the sleepwear to either Health Canada nor Nasri International.

What to do if you have these items in your home

You should immediately stop using the recalled sleepwear and return them to the shop where they were purchased for a refund. If you need more information, you may contact Nasri International at 1-514-334-8282.

The recalled sleepwear was sold at certain Aubainerie, Concept and Croteau stores in Quebec. There were about 420 of the sets sold between 2009 and July 2010. The robe and nightgowns were manufactured in China and imported by Nasri International of Montreal, Quebec.
