Health Canada has recalled several household items that have been sold across the country, many of which are due to fire and injury hazards that pose a serious risk to the health and safety of Canadian consumers.

The federal health department is urging those to verify if they are in possession of any of the affected products, if so, it's recommended to immediately stop using the recalled items, and in some cases, return to the point of purchase for an exchange or a full refund.

Here are the five recalled products to look out for:

IKEA LETTAN Mirror

Recalled Product: IKEA LETTAN Mirror (various sizes)

Recall Reason: "IKEA has identified that some of the plastic fittings, attaching the mirror to the wall, appears to be breaking, which could lead to the mirrors falling, posing an injury hazard," Health Canada said.

What You Should Do: Consumers should stop using the IKEA mirror and either order replacement wall fittings (free of charge) or return the mirror to IKEA for a full refund — a receipt is not required.
