Angry Bird Children’s Pyjamas Recall [Canada]

Canada/Ottawa: Goldtex Textiles recalls some Angry Bird Children’s Pyjamas due to flammability hazard. HCSC:

Direct link:

Additional information:
The Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports its sampling and evaluation program has determined the recalled Angry Bird Children’s Pyjamas 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.

Direct link:

Additional information:
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports this Toy Recall involves a train set comprised of four giraffes (one large and three small), rails and plastic palm trees. The train moves along the rails on battery power. According to the instructions on the toy, it is intended for children over the age of three. HCSC’s sampling and evaluation program has revealed if the toy falls onto a hard surface, it can break into small pieces. Since Health Canada considers this toy is intended for children under the age of three, regardless of what is indicated on the packaging, the small pieces pose a choking hazard.
