What to do

Affected products

This recall involves Pok Pok Thaan Thai-style Charcoal sold in a 5-pound bag and can be identified by the UPC 854741003083.

Issue

Health Canada's sampling and evaluation program project has revealed that the Pok Pok Thaan Thai-style 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. Pok Pok Thaan Thai-style 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 16, 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 Knifewear Inc. for a corrected bilingual label.
