A product sold widespread at Winners, HomeSense and Marshalls in Canada has been recalled due to a suffocation hazard.
Health Canada today said the recall involves various sleep sacks for infants in size 0-6 months.
The brands include: First Wish, Sam & Jo, Dylan and Abby, Miss Mona Mouse, Harry & Me, and Aspen.
This product is an article of bedding, a fabric bag that has armholes or sleeves and is closed at the feet, Health Canada said in its recall warning with the “hazard identified.”
“The size of the neck opening is larger than what the standard in the UK permits, which may cause an infant to slide into the sleep sack, posing a suffocation hazard,” the warning states. “Consumers should immediately stop using the affected products and return them to any Winners, Marshalls or HomeSense for a refund.”
The recalled sleep sacks can be identified by the model number CA07043 located on the sewn in label.
“They come in a variety of colours and designs, including penguins, animal faces, zoo animals, dinosaur bones, celestial animals, birch trees, circus designs, vintage cars, etc.” Health Canada states.
As of January 25 the company has received no reports of suffocation in Canada.
The company reported that 17,482 units of the affected product were sold at HomeSense, Marshalls, and Winners locations across Canada between January 2018 and December 2020.
