Sweet Peanut Children’s Sleepwear Recall [Canada]

Canada/Ottawa: Sweet Peanut recalls some Children’s Sleepwear Clothing Products due to flammability hazard. HCSC: http://ht.ly/ktoyX

Direct link: http://healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall-alert-rappel-avis/hc-sc/2013/26839r-eng.php

Additional information:
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports the following Sweet Peanut Children’s Sleepwear Products are subject to this recall:

  • Footed Suit Standing Tall Design
  • Long Peanut Suit Scattered Flowers Design
  • Long Peanut Suit Adventure Stripe Design
  • Short Peanut Suit Balloon Safari Design

Health Canada/Santé Canada says its sampling and evaluation program has determined the recalled Sweet Peanut Children’s 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.

About Sesame Allergies:
For some people, sesame and sesame products are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions requiring immediate medical intervention and treatment. Check ingredients labels carefully: sesame-based ingredients may also be listed as any of the following: benne, benne seed and benniseed; gingelly and gingelly oil; sesamol and sesamolina; sesamum indicum; sim sim; and til.

Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to sesame or sesame ingredients within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death. If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call-9-1-1 or other local emergency number for immediate transport to a medical center. If trained and an emergency kit is available, it may be appropriate to give an injectable drug such as Epinephrine (also known as adrenaline or adrenalin) to the affected individual. Trade names of these products include EpiPen, Twinject, Adrenaclick, Anapen, Jext, Allerject and Auvi-Q. Please note: even patients who are apparently stabilized should still go to hospital for emergency evaluation. Further treatment is often necessary.

Liza and Pluto Bunk Bed Recall [Australia]

Australia/Canberra: Le Cornu Furniture Centre recalls some Liza and Pluto Bunk Beds due to fall, injury hazards. ACCC: http://ht.ly/krlwU

Direct link: http://www.recalls.gov.au/content/index.phtml/itemId/1047060

Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the recalled Bunk Bed does not comply with the Australian mandatory safety standard for bunk beds, AS/NZS 4220:1994. The standard requires that the vertical distance between the top of the guard rail and the label indicating the maximum height of the mattress must be at least 160mm. According to the ACCC, inaccurate label positioning may lead to an incorrect size mattress being used on the top bunk. As a result, a child can roll over the guard rail and suffer fall-related injuries.
