Toys 'R' Us Canada has issued an urgent recall of its Koala Baby two-pack sleepers due to them not meeting flammability requirements.
With a new baby comes a whole new litany of worries and responsibilities we have never had to contemplate before, especially if it's our first. A whole new human being to look after that can do nothing for his or herself. They'll need feeding, changing, winding, and comforting whenever they feel upset.
Amid everything you have to think about as a new parent, the last thing you need is the additional worry that the pajamas your little one is sleeping in are not safe. Sadly, if you have recently bought sleepwear for your baby from Toys 'R' Us Canada, that is now a worry you have to consider. Don't panic just yet though as we have all the details on what exactly Toys 'R' Us Canada has recalled.
The product being recalled is the Koala Baby two-pack sleepers. Said product has apparently fallen short of the flammability requirements. The fox, bear, dino, zebra, and sheep designs are all among those that are part of the recall. If you have bought any of these products from Toys 'R' Us Canada recently, then we have supplied all of the affected batch codes below courtesy of Today's Parent.
You might wonder why baby clothes are subject to such stringent flammability regulations since babies shouldn't be around naked flames anyway. However, you would be surprised how often they are without you noticing. Candles, burners on the oven, matches, all the things that you might inadvertently hold your baby close to while you're busy going about your day. All of this is taken into consideration when establishing regulations regarding the flammability of baby products.
Again, if you are reading this, don't panic. Even if you have bought any of the products listed above, you are now aware of the dangers and the recall. You are currently able to return the product to Toys 'R' Us Canada for a refund, or you can call them on 1-866-345-5656 if you have any questions.
