Hazard identified

The recalled sleepwear has cotton ruffles and/or other 3-D decorative features (such as bunny ears attached to the feet) that do not meet the flammability requirements for children’s sleepwear under Canadian Law.

Such decorative features can come in contact with ignition sources such as stove elements, candles, and matches, and once ignited will burn rapidly, posing a burn hazard to children.

Neither Health Canada nor The Children’s Place have received reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of the affected products in Canada or the United States.

Number sold

Approximately, 3,830 units of the recalled products were sold in Canada.

Approximately, 33,000 units of the recalled products were sold in the United States.

Time period sold

The recalled sleepers were sold exclusively at The Children’s Place stores in Canada and the United States, and online from The Children’s Place website, from January 2012 through June 2013.

Place of origin

Manufactured in China.
