Although most foods and products are safe, some edibles and items slip through the cracks and when they do, it’s good to be aware so you can fix or avoid them.

You wouldn’t want a phone exploding in your hand, now would you?

Here’s a list of products with recall notices.

1)    The Samsung Note7

The smartphone is a fire hazard, as the battery has the potential to overheat and burn. So far, Health Canada and Samsung have received one report of overheating, but no injuries have been reported. Approximately 21,953 of the recalled phones were sold in Canada and the recall period covers phones sold between Aug.19 and Sept. 1.  If you have an affected device, you can register for a replacement product or contact Samsung Electronics Canada Inc. toll free at 1-800-517-3507.

2)    Hype Roam Electric Self Balancing Scooter

These products — better known as hoverboards — have been recalled. The affected products can be identified by the model number HY RM and following UPCs: 888255159342; 888255159328; 888255159304. The battery packs can overheat, meaning they are a potentially dangerous fire hazard. Approximately 650 units of the affected scooters were sold at Bed Bath & Beyond in store and online in Canada and the items were sold from November 2015 to December 2015. If you own a scooter, contact Hype Wireless Ltd. for a replacement or repair.

3)    Amsterdam Brewery Sweetwater Squeeze Blood Orange Radler

4)    Heinz Strained Prunes

Kraft Heinz Canada is recalling Heinz-brand strained prunes due to the possible presence of rubber in the product. If you have this product in your home, do not consume it. You can dispose of it or return it to the store. According to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), there has been one reported incident associated with the product.

5)    Forest River Cherokee

It was recently announced that on certain travel trailers, the tires may come into contact with the floor or wheel well when the suspension fully compresses, potentially resulting in tire damage or adversely affecting vehicle handling. If you have this vehicle, dealers will inspect and rectify the problem.

6)    Hyundai Tucson

On certain 2016 Hyundai Tucson vehicles equipped with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, the clutch could have delayed engagement when accelerating from a stop in higher ambient temperatures. If you have this vehicle, speak to your dealer.
