See all onesies showed below.

Hazard

The onesies contain levels of lead and phthalates in excess of allowable limits and may pose a risk of exposure to children.

Studies suggest that certain phthalates, including DEHP, may cause reproductive and developmental abnormalities in young children when soft vinyl products containing phthalates are sucked or chewed for extended periods.

Lead is toxic if ingested, especially to children. A range of serious health effects have been associated with exposure to lead including anemia, vomiting, diarrhea, serious brain injury, convulsions, coma, as well as effects related to the liver, kidneys, heart and immune system. In extreme cases, there have been deaths. Since lead builds up in the body, ongoing exposure to even very small amounts of lead can result in large amounts of lead being present in the body.

As of February 10th, 2021, the company has received no reports of incidents or injury in Canada.

What to do

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled product and dispose of it in their household garbage. Consumers who received the affected product will receive a replacement onesie.

For more information, consumers may contact Kraft Heinz Canada by telephone toll-free at 1-855-268-6450, Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. EST, or on the company's website.
