Canadian Recalls: Dollarama Baby Bibs Sold in Summer 2011 Contain Phthalates

Announcements 27 comments


The pictured bibs above that were sold at Dollarama have been recalled because “…the bibs’ lining contains a phthalate, specifically DEHP (Di(2-ethylhexyl) Phthalate), which exceeds the allowable limit.

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.

Neither Health Canada nor Dollarama has received any reports of incidents or illnesses related to the use of these bibs.”

Item numbers 19-1900392 and 19-3018618 sold between July-August 2011 are the only ones affected.  See full details here.

This is unfortunate as these were awesome bibs. I had to toss quite a few of my sons.
