5 Household Items Sold Across Canada Have Been Recalled Due To Injury, Fire & Asphyxiation Hazards
"Immediately stop using the recalled products."
Health Canada has issued a number of recall warnings regarding several household items sold across the country, many of which are due to asphyxiation, fire and injury hazards that pose a serious risk to the health and safety of Canadian consumers.
The federal health department is urging Canadians to check whether 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:
