Frederic Lou Inc. recalls Spasilk Baby Bathrobe
This recall involves 100% cotton hooded bathrobes for children 0 to 9 months old. The bathrobes are light pink with a small fish decal and were sold with a pair of matching booties. The item number for the product is BR W03 and the UPC is 874989005406.
Health Canada's sampling and evaluation program had determined that these 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.
As of January 24, 2017, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada.

Raincoast Alternatives recalls Saicos Wood Oil products

Materials used with the product, such as rags, may spontaneously self-ignite, even with no source of ignition like a spark or flame.
As of January 27, 2017 neither Health Canada nor Raincoast Alternatives has received reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of these products.
