Recalls of the Week for Mississauga: Cars and Kid’s PJs
Published November 1, 2016 at 9:23 pm
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.
Here’s a list of products with recall notices:
Livo Canada SVALOS 222 Tool Cleaner and Thinner
These products (SVALOS 222 tool cleaner and thinner – 500ml, SVALOS 222 tool cleaner and thinner – 1L, SVALOS 222 tool cleaner and thinner – 5L, SVALOS 222 tool cleaner and thinner – 10L) have been recalled because they do not feature proper warning labels and may pose aspiration hazards (meaning that, should it be ingested, it could be absorbed into the lungs through coughing or vomiting and lead to serious adverse health effects or death). No injuries have been reported so far. If you have this product, do not use it and contact Livos Canada at
1-877-909-3123 to obtain a proper label.
Neal Brothers Foods Salt & Vinegar Kettle Chips
These salt & vinegar chips are being recalled due to the presence of undeclared milk. You can see the specific batches affected here. If you have an allergy to milk, you should not consume these chips and return them to the store for a refund.
Mini Kids Inc. Caluby Brand Children’s Sleepwear
Caluby brand’s boy’s sleepwear (code 1166 can be found on the inside tag), sold in a 2-piece pyjama set, has been recalled because it does not meet the flammability requirements for children’s sleepwear under Canadian law. The affected pjs are blue and red with an image of an alien face on the shirt and smaller aliens on the pants. If the clothing touches a heat source, it may burn rapidly, increasing risk of serious injury. If your child has these jammies, return them to the store for a full refund.
Mitsubishi 2011 RVR Model
On some vehicles, water may drain from the windshield cowl area and potentially collect in the area of the wiper motor breathing hole. Over time, this could result in corrosion and/or an electrical conduction failure, both of which could result in the wiper motor not operating (meaning you could end up with dysfunctional wipers in the rain). If you have this vehicle, dealers will replace the wiper motor with a functional one.
Mitsubishi 2007 Outlander Model
On some vehicles, water may drain from the windshield cowl area onto the front wiper link ball joint. Over time, this could result in corrosion and/or wear to the joint, which could result in the separation of the wiper link ball. If separation were to occur, the windshield wipers could become inoperative. Dealers will replace the rubber boot which covers the ball joint with a countermeasure one, and the wiper motor crank arm will also be inspected and replaced as necessary.
Jaguar 2014 XF Model
On certain vehicles, the fuel delivery line may not have sufficient clearance between the underfloor and the under shield. This could cause the fuel line to chafe against the underfloor and the under shield, which could result in a potentially dangerous fuel leak. If you have this vehicle, dealers will inspect the fuel delivery line and replace it as necessary. Additional clips will be added to prevent chafing.
Jaguar 2017 F-Type
“On certain F-TYPE SVR specification vehicles, the rear lower control arm knuckle assembly deformable bolt may have been torqued multiple times during the time of assembly, contrary to the specification. This could cause the anti-corrosion coating to come off, exposing bare metal to the environment, resulting in premature fatigue failure causing separation of the joint. A separating control arm knuckle assembly could affect vehicle handling and stability increasing the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property.” If you have this vehicle, dealers will inspect and replace any over torqued deformable bolt.
