Published January 15, 2023 at 1:02 pm
Multiple food items and other products have been recalled from retailers this past week (Jan. 9 to 15), including stores in Mississauga and Brampton and online marketplaces, due to potential health and safety risks.
See below for more information on each recall:
Risk: Possible Listeria contamination. Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. Symptoms can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness. Pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk.
What you should do: Recalled food products should be thrown out or returned to the store they were purchased from.
Risk: The recalled products may contain mold.
What you should do: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled sleepwear, robes and ski pants and return to Giant Tiger store for refund.
Risk: The circuit board inside the vacuum’s battery pack can overheat and smoke, posing a fire hazard. As of December 20, 2022, the company has received 6 reports of burning smell or smoke with no reports of injuries in Canada. The company has also received 55 reports outside of Canada of burning smell or smoke.
What you should do: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled product and contact BISSELL to obtain a free battery pack replacement.
Risk: The free standing Smart TV can become unstable while on the assembled stand, posing serious tip-over and entrapment hazards that can result in injuries or death to children and others.
What you should do: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled product and detach the TV from the support stand. Consumers should then place the television face down on a soft cloth or blanket in a safe location away from children. Contact LG Electronics for instructions on how to inspect the unit and to obtain replacement screws and stand parts, including help from a technician for a free repair. Consumers whose TVs are wall-mounted do not need to stop using them.
Risk: If the recalled AT2 Boots are laced loosely or untied, unlaced at the ankle support of the boot, not laced through the eyelet, or the lace hooks are left unlaced, etc., it is possible that the lace hook on the inside of one boot can catch on the loose cable on the inside of the other boot, posing a trip-and-fall hazard. As of January 5, 2023, the company has received one report of a trip-and-fall in Canada that resulted in fall-related injury.
What you should do: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled hiking boots and contact Salewa for instructions to obtain a replacement.
Risk: IKEA has identified that some of the plastic fittings attaching the mirror to the wall appear to be breaking, which could lead to the mirrors falling, posing an injury hazard. Globally, the company has received 55 reports of mirrors falling, with minor injuries and minor property damage as a result.
What you should do: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled LETTAN mirrors. IKEA urges all customers who own an affected LETTAN mirror to stop using it, and to order replacement wall fittings free of charge. Customers may also return the mirror to IKEA for refund. A receipt is not required.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
