Tea Collection Children’s Sleepwear Recall [Canada]

Canada/Ottawa: Tea Living recalls some Tea Collection Footies and Footed Romper Childrens’ Sleepwear due to flammability hazard. HCSC: http://ht.ly/jtJDn

Direct link: http://healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall-alert-rappel-avis/hc-sc/2013/26399r-eng.php

Additional information:
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports its sampling and evaluation program has determined the recalled Tea Collection Footies and Footed Romper Childrens’ Sleepwear 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.
