Montreal, QC, Canada (4E) – About 627 units of Basselino Baby Sleepers have been recalled by OK Kids because they can easily catch fire.
“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,” the firm said.
Moreover, Health Canada’s sampling and evaluation program has determined that these products do not meet the flammability requirements for children’s sleepwear under Canadian law.
This recall involves Pink sleeper with a bird on a turtle, on a rhinoceros with the model number: BASCWC-04 and Blue sleeper with an elephant, a turtle and a duck, model number: BASCWC-09
Also, Beige and brown sleeper with a monkey on a giraffe, model number: BASCWB-14 .
OK Kids has received no reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of this sleepwear .
Approximately 627 of the recalled products were sold in Canada at various stores within Quebec and New Brunswick from Feb. 2016 to Dec. 2016.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled sleepers and return them to any OK Kids outlet of their choice for a credit, the firm advises.
For more information, you may reach OK Kids at their head office, at 514-332-5437.
