On April 15, 2019, the U.S. Consumer Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada announced a recall of yukata made in China.
The recalled product is H&M children’s hooded yukata with 100% cotton. One is grey, lined in white, pink or white or blue, with buttons on the right side of the chest, and is sized for children aged 6 months to 3 years. The other is white with a cat face pattern for two children, with a belt, and is sized for children aged 6-12 months.
Health Canada found that the product did not meet flammability requirements. This pajamas are looser, easy to contact with stoves, candles and other fire sources, once lit will burn quickly, may cause extensive and severe burns on the child’s body.
The recalled products were sold in the U.S. from October 2018 to March 2019 and in Canada from January 2019 to March 2019 at a price of $25 to $30. The recall involves approximately 980 products in the U.S. and 60 in Canada.
To date, no accidents and casualties have been reported.
CPSC and Health Canada recommend immediately stopping using the product and contacting H&M for a full refund or a $20 gift card.
