Affected products

Spasilk Baby Bathrobe, size 0-9 months

Product description

This recall involves 100% cotton hooded bathrobes for children 0 to 9 months old. The bathrobes are light pink with a small fish decal and were sold with a pair of matching booties. The item number for the product is BR W03 and the UPC is 874989005406.

Hazard identified

Health Canada's sampling and evaluation program had 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, and once ignited will burn 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.

As of January 24, 2017, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada.

For more information on what makes safe sleepwear, visit the Healthy Canadians children's sleepwear page.

Number sold

Approximately 37 units of the affected products were sold in Canada at Bed, Bath and Beyond stores and online at Amazon Canada.

Time period sold

The recalled products were sold from March 2015 to January 2017.

Place of origin

Manufactured in China.
