pyjamasMode Choc recalls "Attrape moi si tu peux" girls' pyjamas

Product description
This recall involves girls' 2‑piece pyjamas sold under the brand Mini Zone Choc and with the model numbers PY120‑F6, for sizes 2 to 6X, and PY120‑F1, for infant sizes 12M to 18M. The pyjamas are pink and have an appliqué of a girl elf holding a string of Christmas lights and the words "Attrape moi si tu peux."

Hazard identified
Health Canada's sampling and evaluation program has determined that the recalled products 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.

Neither Health Canada nor Mode Choc has received reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of this sleepwear.

Kidde Recalls Talking Combination Smoke and CO Alarms

Affected products
Kidde Nighthawk KN-COSM-IBCA and KN-COSM-ICA Combo Smoke and Carbon Monoxide ("CO") Alarm

Product description
This recall involves Kidde NightHawk talking combo smoke/CO Alarm KN-COSM-IBCA and KN-COSM-ICA models with manufacture dates between June 1, 2004 and March 2011. The alarms are hard-wired into a home's electric power.

The alarms are white, round and measure about 5 to 6 inches in diameter.  "Kidde" is engraved on the front of the alarm. "Kidde", the model number and manufacture dates are printed on a label on the back of the alarm.  Model KN-COSM-IBCA has a compartment on the back for the installation of a replaceable 9V backup battery, while model KN-COSM-ICA does not have a battery backup.

Hazard identified
The alarm can fail to continue to chirp when it reaches its seven year end of life if the batteries are replaced or, for the model without a battery backup, if power is removed and then restored to the alarm. This could lead consumers to believe it is still working, which poses a risk to consumers not being alerted to a fire or carbon monoxide incident in their home.

Neither Health Canada nor Kidde has received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of this product.  In the United States, Kidde has received eight reports of incidents with no reported injuries. Details:
