Issue

The recalled products do not have the proper consumer chemical labelling and the child-resistant packaging required by of the Consumer Chemicals and Containers Regulations, 2001 under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act.

The Akfix 705 Universal Fast Adhesive and Activator were labelled with the health and safety information on hazardous products intended for use, handling, or storage in Canadian workplaces, and lack the symbols and warnings required for consumer chemicals. Health Canada has evidence of sale of the products to consumers and this lack of appropriate labelling and child-resistant packaging could result in unintended exposure to these products and lead to serious illness or injury, or death.

As of February 26, 2024, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada.

What you should do

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled products and dispose of the products safely according to local municipal hazardous waste requirements.
