Under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act, teether fillings must not contain any living micro-organisms. Health Canada's sampling and evaluation program has determined that the liquid filling is contaminated with the bacteria Bacillus cereus, Candida parapsilosis, and Omithinibacillus californiensis. These bacteria generally do not cause illness in healthy individuals. However, the bacteria can affect children with weakened immune systems, causing stomach pain, vomiting and diarrhea, if the teether is punctured and the liquid filling is ingested.

As of August 11, 2022, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada.
