Affected products

This recall involves Lump Charcoal and Jealous Devil Maxx Briquets manufactured by Jealous Devil. These charcoal products are used for barbeque cooking. 

Recalled products:

Product Name



Jealous Devil Maxxx Briquets

The product comes in a black bag, with white and red text. It has a net weight of 10lbs


Jealous Devil XL All-Natural Hardwood Lump Charcoal

The product bag comes in a red and black shade, with red and white text. It has a net weight of 20lbs



Health Canada's sampling and evaluation program project has revealed that the Jealous Devil Lump Charcoal and Jealous Devil Maxxx Extra Large Briquets do not meet the warning label requirements under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA). The CCPSA requires warning labels be in both French and English. Jealous Devil Charcoal does not have a French warning label.

Charcoal produces carbon monoxide. This can be toxic if it is burned inside or in an area without proper ventilation, posing a suffocation hazard to users. Warning labels help to protect the public by telling them about this hazard.

As of May 18, 2021, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada.

What you should do

Consumers should immediately stop using the product and contact Dickson Barbeque for a French label.

For more information, consumers may contact the firm by telephone at 647-429-0345 from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm (EST), by email: CUSTOMERCARE@DICKSONBBQ.COM, or visit the firm's website

Please note that the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act prohibits recalled products from being redistributed, sold or even given away in Canada.

Health Canada would like to remind Canadians to report any health or safety incidents related to the use of this product or any other consumer product or cosmetic by filling out the Consumer Product Incident Report Form.
