This week Health Canada is recalling several children’s products that pose entrapment and ingestion hazards as well as food items that contain common allergens and mould.

Convertible House Bed Frames and Montessori Floor Beds by Zipadee Kids
Health Canada has issued an alert regarding the Montessori Floor Bed and Convertible House Bed Frame by Zipadee Kids.
The beds are available in twin, full, queen, and toddler sizes.
The spindle spacing on the frame are inadequate, as a child’s torso could pass through the rail opening but not their head. Thus creating a potential of entrapment, strangulation, and death in children aged 18 months and older.
Risks: Potential entrapment hazard.
What you should do: Immediately stop using the impacted beds and dispose of them.

Thomas & Friends™ Wooden Railway Products
The products are wooden toy train cars intended for children aged 2 and older.
Each train car features a connector containing a high-powered magnet which allows the train car to be connected to others.

The following product numbers are affected by the recall:
The plastic piece with a high-powered magnet, linking train cars, may detach or loosen.
These small, but powerful magnets can be easily swallowed by children of all ages. Should more than one magnet be ingested in a short period of time, they can attract one another while moving through the intestines. This can cause the intestines to twist, creating blockages or tearing of the intestinal walls.
