Issue

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

These products pose an aspiration hazard if ingested. The lack of child-resistant packaging and appropriate labelling information could result in unintentional exposure to the product and lead to serious illness or injury, including death.

Aspiration into the lungs can occur when the product enters the lungs directly or is coughed up or vomited after being ingested. This coughing/vomiting could cause small particles of the product to travel into the lungs, or the product may be inhaled directly in the form of a fine mist. This may result in serious health effects.

As of January 26, 2022, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada.

What you should do

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

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