The recall takes place on products sold between 14 January 201719 January 2017 and across Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and Australian Capital Territory. 

What’s wrong with the product?

According to Product Safety Australia, “The product does not carry the proper fire hazard labels as required by the mandatory standard for children’s sleepwear and limited daywear.

Failure to include the correct fire hazard information may result in consumers being unaware of the fire danger rating for these garments.”

Recall acts as warning to all parents – you can never be too careful!

It should be noted that all other Tiny Tribe apparel has been cleared from this recall and that the recall only takes place for items sold in the time specified above.

While there have been no reported incidents related to the product, it is always best to err on the side of safety and take all necessary precautions, especially when it comes to baby products.

This isn’t the first product recall to impact Aussie parents this year. In January, Product Safety Australia recalled Bubba Beanbags due to choking hazards. You can read one mum’s chilling experience with her infant right here.
