The recalled product does not meet the child-resistant packaging nor the labelling requirements for consumer chemical products required by the Consumer Chemicals and Containers Regulations, 2001 under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act.
These products pose an aspiration hazard if inhaled or ingested. The lack of child-resistant packaging and appropriate labelling information could result in unintentional exposure to the product and lead to serious illness or injury, including death.
Aspiration into the lungs can occur when the product enters the lungs directly or is coughed up or vomited after being ingested. This coughing/vomiting could cause small particles of the product to travel into the lungs, or the product may be inhaled directly in the form of a fine mist. This may result in serious health effects.
