Pieces of glass in alcohol product triggers recall in Mississauga, Brampton and area
Published August 7, 2022 at 4:09 pm
Residents in Mississauga and Brampton are encouraged to check their liquor cabinet for this dill pickle flavoured vodka after Health Canada recalled the product this week for possibly containing pieces of glass.
Other commercial products recalled recently include DEWALT Compound Miter Saws, tabletop fire pits, and an epoxy and resin countertops coating kit that is being sold without a child-safe cap.
See below for the full details surrounding the recall for each item.
Risk: Sask Prairie’s dill pickle flavoured vodka is recalled due to the possible presence of pieces of glass in the product. The vodka is made by Minhas Sask Ventures Incorporated of Saskatchewan. The product is sold in 750mL bottles.
What you should do: Do not use, sell, serve, or distribute the affected product. Immediately throw the product in the garbage.
Risk: Stone Coat Countertops Art Coat Resin Kit is recalled due to the lack of appropriate labelling and child-resistant packaging for the product. Each kit contains epoxy resin and hardener components that are designed to be mixed together.
The epoxy and resin kits do not meet the labelling and child-resistant packaging requirements as stated by the Consumer Chemicals and Containers Regulations, 2001 under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act. Infants and children could have an unintentional exposure to the products which could lead to serious illness or injury, including death.
This product is meant for countertops, kitchens, bathrooms, and other renovation projects. Resin and hardener are both clear and come in clear bottles. The affected product is sold in kit sizes of 1/2 gallon, 1 gallon, and 2 gallon.
What you should do: Immediately stop using the recalled products and dispose of them according to local municipal hazardous waste guidelines.
Risk: DEWALT 12-inch Sliding Compound Miter Saws are recalled due to a possible laceration hazard. The rear-guard assembly can break or detach, exposing a sharp blade.
The company has received a total of 571 incident reports of the rear-guard assembly breaking or detaching. A reported 118,583 affected saws were sold in Canada from April 2019 to May 2022.
What you should do: Immediately stop using the recalled product and contact Stanley Black & Decker Canada Corporation for a replacement rear guard assembly kit or go to a DEWALT Service Center for a free repair.

Risk: Cozy Flame CA Tabletop Fire Pits are recalled due to the lack of appropriate labelling and hazard information for the product. The fire pits do not meet the labelling requirements as stated by the Consumer Chemicals and Containers Regulations, 2001, under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act.
This product needs to be refilled with fuel and considering the lack of appropriate labeling, a fire or burn hazard called flame jetting is very likely to occur.
Flame jetting happens when you try to refill a container with fuel while it is still burning or hot with a flame that is not readily visible. The fuel vapours in the air can ignite, causing a burst of flaming fuel to rapidly come out and spread fire everywhere.
The wood and metal tabletop fire pits come in four shapes: a circle, square, rectangle, or hexagon. The company reported that 11 units of the affected products were sold in Canada.
What you should do: Immediately stop using the recalled tabletop fire pit and contact Cozy Flame CA for more information.
Consumers may contact Cozy Flame CA by telephone at 1-413-276-5756 Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. CT or by email at [email protected]insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
