Product Safety

Product safety is a priority at Gildan. Customer health and safety is essential to Gildan because of Gildan's promise to provide safe products and meet the quality expectations of customers, all while adhering to applicable regulatory requirements. We ensure that our products comply with the consumer product safety laws and regulations of the jurisdictions in which they are sold, which, in the United States include, the Consumer Product Safety Act and the Flammable Fabrics Act, as well as several state laws such as California’s Proposition 65. We also work to ensure compliance with the laws and regulations applicable in other markets, including the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act, and the European Union’s General Product Safety Directive. When required, our products undergo flammability testing and testing for lead, phthalates, and other harmful substances.

The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission requires that children’s products that are designed or intended primarily for use by children ages 12 or younger must have distinguishing permanent marks, generally referred to as “tracking labels”.

You may obtain information about Gildan’s products that include tracking labels by writing to cpscyouthtrack@gildan.comor by calling 1-877-445-3265, extension 8288.
