Youth Flannel Lounge Pants [Canada]

Canada/Ottawa: Boathouse Stores recalls some Youth Flannel Lounge Pants due to flammability hazard. HCSC: http://ht.ly/j0gRn

Direct link: http://healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall-alert-rappel-avis/hc-sc/2013/25999r-eng.php

Additional information:
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports its sampling and evaluation program has determined the recalled Flannel Lounge Pants 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.

About Listeria poisoning:
The bacteria that cause Listeriosis (Listeria poisoning) most often produce a gastrointestinal illness that can be quite serious or even fatal. Listeriosis in pregnancy, for example, may cause a miscarriage or fetal death. In other cases, people can develop Septicemia (a serious blood infection) or Meningitis (an inflammation of the covering of the brain and spinal cord, known collectively as the meninges).
