Health Canada reports that multiple products have been recalled from stores in Ontario this week (Oct 11 to 17) due to potential health and safety risks, including stores in Mississauga and Brampton.
Residents are advised to check if they have these products at home and avoid using or consuming them out of caution.
The following products are affected:
Risk: Ombrelle Canada is recalling all lots due to elevated levels of benzene, which may pose serious health risks.

Immediate signs of exposure to elevated levels of benzene include drowsiness, dizziness, rapid or irregular heartbeat, and headaches.
What you should do: If you have any of these products, it is advised to stop using the recalled products. Consult a health-care professional if you have used any of these products and have health concerns. Continue using other sunscreens as directed on the product label.
Risk: Global Vegetarian Foods Corp is recalling Happy Veggie World brand Vege Chicken Breast and Vegefarm brand Vege Stewed Lamb Chunk from the marketplace because they may contain egg which is not declared on the label. If you have an allergy to egg, do not consume the recalled products as they may cause a serious or life-threatening reaction.
What you should do: Check to see if you have the recalled products in your home. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased.
