Kids’ play tents and multiple baby items recalled in Mississauga, Brampton and area


Published July 31, 2022 at 5:27 pm

Parents in Mississauga, Brampton and the surrounding area are warned of several baby items being recalled by Health Canada, including a glass bottle with lead-containing designs on the outside.

NUK First Choice Glass Baby Bottles

Risk: NUK First Choice glass baby bottles are recalled due to the presence of lead in more than an allowable amount. The glass bottles are described as having a latex top intended for infants 0 to 6 months in age and are 240 mL in size. The brand name “NUK” is in white lettering on the outside of the bottle, along with a graduated volume scale in white markings, and white and gray star designs.

The markings on the outside of the bottle contain lead in excess of the allowable limit established by the Consumer Products Containing Lead Regulations.

Lead is toxic if ingested, especially to children. Since lead builds up in the body, ongoing exposure to even very small amounts of lead can result in large amounts of the metal being present in the body.

The baby bottles were manufactured for the UK market only and not intended for sale in Canada. Direct Care Limited of Birmingham, Great Britain sold the NUK First Choice glass baby bottles on Amazon. The company says 77 units of the affected product were reported sold in Canada.

What you should do: Immediately stop using the recalled glass baby bottle. Contact NUK for information on how to return the recalled bottle and receive a refund. Health Canada says the Amazon seller Direct Care is contacting all purchasers directly.

Kidoozie Brand Play Tents

Risk: Kidoozie brand play tents are recalled due to their potential to catch on fire. The tents fail to meet the requirements of the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act’s Tents Regulations.

The tents are available in seven different themes: Ice Castle Tent, King Size Medieval Castle, My Clubhouse, Pirate Den Playhouse, Pop Up Theater Tent, Princess Hideaway Playhouse, and Royal Castle Playhouse. The company reported that 37,211 units of the affected product were sold in Canada.

What you should do: Immediately stop using the recalled children’s tents. Contact Epoch Everlasting Play LLC for instructions on how to receive a refund or replacement or visit the manufacturing company’s website.

LIKCO Baby Walker

Risk: Health Canada warns that the LIKCO Baby Walker may pose an injury hazard. Baby walkers are banned in Canada under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act. Baby walkers expose children to hazards that would not normally be accessible if they were not supported by the walker. A baby walker may also fall down the stairs.

Canadians were able to purchase the baby walker on Amazon. Health Canada has contacted the foreign selling companies and is advising Canadians to immediately stop using these baby walkers purchased online

The distributing companies on Amazon were Chun Yan Bai Huo from China and HanDingWangLuoKeJi also from China.

What you should do: Immediately stop using the baby walker and destroy the item so it cannot be used again. Safely dispose of the baby walker according to local municipal waste guidelines.
