What is the danger?

The machine oil included in the packaging of these Mastercraft power tools poses an aspiration hazard. Ingestion of this machine oil may result in serious adverse health effects.

Unfortunately the machine oil bottle does not have the proper hazard labelling and child resistant caps as required by Canadian law. The lack of labelling and child-resistant packaging may result in serious illnesses or injuries.

At time of the recall neither Canadian Tire nor Health Canada has received any reports of incidents or illness to Canadians related to the use of the machine oil.

What do I do?

You should immediately stop using the recalled machine oil and contact Mastercraft to determine whether the power tool they purchased contains the recalled machine oil.

If you have products that are affected by this recall then you will be supplied with a new bottle of oil for the power tools. The oil in the new bottle has been reformulated so that it does not pose an aspiration hazard and does not require cautionary labelling and child resistant packaging.

You should dispose of the recalled machine oil as per Municipal Hazardous Waste Guidelines.

If you want more information, you may contact Mastercraft at 1-800-689-9928 to have free replacement machine oil shipped to them at no cost.

It is not known how many of the power tools that had the recalled machine oil were sold between January 2004 and May 2010. As of June 2010 the compliant machine oil is being packaged with power tools at Canadian Tire.

The machine oil was manufactured in China. The importer is Canadian Tire Corporation Ltd. of Toronto, Ontario.
