What is the danger?

An inspection by Health Canada has determined that the recalled product does not meet labelling requirements for consumer chemical products under Canadian law.

These recalled products lack the symbols and warnings required for consumer chemical products sold in Canada. This lack of labelling information may lead to serious adverse health risks.

At time of the recall Health Canada has not received any reports of illnesses or injuries related to the use of these products.

What do I do?

You should immediately stop using the recalled products and dispose of them as per Municipal Hazardous Waste Guidelines. If you are not sure of the proper protocol then you should contact your municipality for instructions on how to dispose of aerosol products.

How many were sold and where?

Over 19,500 of the recalled products were sold at various discount and dollar stores across Canada.

These recalled products were sold by UWG Global Inc. from 2009 to October 2010 and by Encore Sales Inc. from January 2010 to October 2010.

The distributors of these products are Encore Sales Ltd. of Concord, Ontario and UWG Global Inc. of Brampton, Ontario.
