Multiple products have been recalled from retailers in Ontario this week (Nov. 20-26), including stores in Mississauga and Brampton, due to potential health and safety risks.
See below for more information on each recall:
Risk: Despite being labelled as vegan, the product contains milk which is not listed on the label.
What you should do: Consumers unable to eat milk products should check if the product can be returned to the store it was purchased from.
Risk: The product may contain lead above the regulatory limits. A range of serious health effects have been associated with exposure to lead and cadmium, including anemia, vomiting, diarrhea, and heart and immune system issues.
What you should do: Consumers should immediately stop using the pocket cube and return it to Les Editons Passe-Temps Inc. for a full refund of the product or a gift card for an amount greater than the value of the product. Consumers may keep the playing cards included with the product as they do not present a hazard.
Risk: The mugs may crack or break when filled with hot liquid, posing a burn and laceration hazards to users. As of September 27, 2022, the company has received eight incident reports in Canada of the mug cracking while in use.
