Issue

The recalled products do not meet the labelling requirements for consumer chemical products required by the Consumer Chemicals and Containers Regulations, 2001 under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act.

Some of the products lack the required precautionary labelling required for products that could spontaneously combust under reasonably foreseeable conditions of use. Products identified as spontaneously combustible may cause rags and cloths used with the product to burn on their own. This lack of labelling information could result in unintentional exposure to the product and lead to serious illness, injury or death.

As of December 7, 2021, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada.

What you should do

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled products and safely dispose of them in accordance with municipal hazardous waste requirements.
