Published May 1, 2022 at 12:01 pm


Multiple products have been recalled from stores in Ontario this week (Apr. 25 to May 1) 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:

Various Elite brand chocolate products

Risk: Various Elite brand chocolate products, including chocolate chips, chocolate fingers and chocolate bars, are being recalled from the marketplace due to possible Salmonella contamination.

Food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick with symptoms such as fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. Risks are higher for young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems.

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.

Pimlico Confectioners brand Vegan Fine Hazelnut Truffles

Pimlico Confectioners – Vegan Fine Hazelnut Truffles – 110 g (front)

Risk: The product contains milk which is not listed on the label.

What you should do: Residents who are unable to consume milk should check if the product can be returned to the store it was purchased from.

AllMeInGeld Children’s Nightgowns

AllMeInGeld Children’s Nightgown

Risk: The nightgowns do not meet the flammability requirements for children’s sleepwear, posing a risk of burn injuries to children. Loose-fitting children’s sleepwear can contact ignition sources such as stove elements, candles and matches more readily than tight-fitting sleepwear.

What you should do: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled product and contact AllMeInGeld to request a postage prepaid mailer to return the products for a full refund.

DR Power Brand & Generac Brand electric start pressure washers

Recalled Generac Electric Start Pressure Washers label location

Risk: If the electrical contacts under the engine’s start/stop button cover are exposed to moisture, under certain conditions the button may activate without being pushed, causing the pressure washer to self-start and posing a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning if the unit is in a confined space.

What you should do: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled pressure washer unless they have removed the rechargeable battery, and contact Generac to arrange to have an authorized dealer replace the start/stop switch on the pressure washer free of charge. The pressure washer can continue to be used with the battery removed but using the pull-start option to start the unit.

AmazonBasics School Classroom Stack Chairs

AmazonBasics School Classroom Stack Chairs

Risk: The weld on the chair’s frame can fail, posing a fall hazard. As of April 25, 2022, the company has received 1 report of a chair breaking in Canada, with no reports of injuries.

What you should do: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled chairs and contact Amazon for instructions on how to dispose of the chairs for a full refund. Amazon is contacting all known purchasers directly.
