What to do

Immediately stop using the charcoal products and contact the company for a corrected bilingual warning label.

Affected products

This recall involves Lumber Jack Premium Hardwood Lump Charcoal sold in a 7 kg bag and identified by UPC 684753022856. The red bag contains large letters with name "LUMBER JACK" and logo characterizing a cartoon "lumber jack" with a moustache and beard holding an axe over his shoulder.


Health Canada's sampling and evaluation program project has revealed that the Lumber Jack Premium Hardwood Lump Charcoal does 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. Lumber Jack Premium Hardwood Lump 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 June 30, 2021, the company has received no reports of incidents and injuries in Canada.

What you should do

Consumers should immediately stop using the product and contact Lumber Jack Distributor Canada Inc. for a corrected bilingual warning label.

For more information, consumers may contact the firm by telephone at 1-306-700-4144 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm (CST), or by email at
