Dr. Seuss Footed Sleeper – Thing 1 & Thing 2 – 9 Months

Product description

A footed red sleeper with some red/white stripes and featuring Dr. Seuss's Thing 1 and Thing 2 characters. The sleeper is made from 100% cotton. The item code FTSLP-C22-9M and the UPC # 0 14292 98193 0 can also be found on the sales tag.

Hazard identified

Health Canada's sampling and evaluation program has determined that these products do not meet the flammability requirements for children’s sleepwear under Canadian law.

Loose-fitting children's sleepwear can contact ignition sources such as stove elements, candles, and matches more readily than tight-fitting sleepwear. Once ignited, loose-fitting sleepwear will burn more rapidly, potentially resulting in severe burns to large areas of the child's body. For this reason, cotton is not permitted in loose fitting sleepwear.

Neither Health Canada nor 2 blue ducks has received reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of this sleepwear.

Number sold

Approximately 450 of the recalled sleepers were sold in Canada.

Time period sold

The recalled sleepers were sold from August 2013 to August 2016.

Place of origin

Manufactured in China.
