Seafood recalled due to possible norovirus contamination in Mississauga and Brampton
Published March 27, 2022 at 11:29 am
Health Canada reports that multiple products have been recalled from stores in Ontario this week (Mar. 21 to 27) 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: Possible norovirus contamination. The main symptoms of norovirus illness are diarrhea, vomiting (children usually experience more vomiting than adults), nausea and stomach cramps. Other symptoms may include low-grade fever, headache, chills, muscle aches and fatigue.
What you should do: Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased. If you think you became sick from eating a recalled product, contact your doctor.
Risk: Product may contain milk which is not declared on the label.
What you should do: Residents with a milk allergy or lactose intolerance should check if the product can be returned to the store it was purchased from.
Risk: The robes may not meet flammability requirements of the Children’s Sleepwear Regulations. Loose-fitting children’s sleepwear can contact ignition sources such as stove elements, candles, and matches more readily than tight-fitting sleepwear, and once ignited will burn rapidly.
What you should do: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled Children’s Plush Critter Robes and discard, or return to Urban Kids for a refund.
Risk: The box with the train set contains a tube of superglue, which is capable of bonding skin instantly. The lack of child-resistant packaging could result in unintentional exposure to these products and lead to serious illness or injury.
What you should do: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled wooden toy train and discard the tube of superglue. The wooden toy train may be returned to the retailer for a refund or disposed of in regular household waste.
Risk: The affected helmets do not comply with the U.S. CPSC federal safety standard for bicycle helmets, posing a risk of head injury.
What you should do: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled helmets and contact Sakar International, Inc. for a free replacement helmet.
Risk: The power cable on the affected units may become brittle and break when exposed to temperatures below -20C, leading to a potential electric shock injury. As of March 10, 2022, the company has received 6 reports of incidents relating to the power cord becoming brittle and breaking in Canada, and no reports of injuries.
What you should do: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled products and return them to any Canadian Tire Store for a full refund.
Risk: The plastic container can break and release sharp shards of plastic, which can fall into the receptacle reservoir with the food, posing ingestion and injury hazards. As of March 21, 2022, Lee Valley Tools has received 6 reports of incidences in Canada and no reports of injuries.
What you should do: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled nut chopper and contact the place of purchase for instructions on how to return the product for a full refund.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
