Parents in Mississauga and Brampton are being warned to take a second look at their babies’ toys as Health Canada recalls a bear-shaped silicone mirror baby activity toy that poses a serious laceration risk
This week, Circle K’s classic potato chips and certain Crescent brand halal meat slices were also recalled. See below for more information on individual reminders.
Konges Sløjd brand silicone baby mirror bear activity toy
Risk: A bear-shaped silicone baby mirror activity toy is being recalled due to a laceration hazard. The mirror can pop out of the silicone cover if pushed, exposing the sharp edges of the mirror.
The company received an incident report in Denmark where the child cut his gums and the corner of his mouth.
The wobbler/tumble toy is made of silicone, is air inflated, and has a glued mirror in the center opening that measures approximately 3 inches in diameter. The company logo, address and the words “Designed in Denmark, Made in China” are embossed on the bottom of the toy.
There were reportedly 18 units of the affected product sold in Canada from October 2021 to April 2022.
What you should do: Immediately remove the toy from children and contact Konges Sløjd for a full refund. For more information, visit the Konges Sløjd website here.
Circle K Classic Potato Chips
Risk: Circle K Classic Potato Chips are being recalled due to undeclared milk. Failure to declare the presence of milk on the label puts customers with milk allergies at risk. The chips are sold in 66g bags with the following expiration information included: “Best before 2023 JA 11 1A8 21:45 to Best before 2023 JA 11 1A8 23:10”
What you should do: Do not use, sell, serve or distribute the affected product. Immediately remove the product from the shelves or from the house and dispose of it in the trash.
Crescent brand pastrami and turkey breast, Tuscan flavor
Risk: Crescent brand Tuscany Flavored Turkey Breast and Pastrami are being recalled due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination. The meat slices are sold in packs of 175 g. Crescent is owned by Tony’s Meats Limited.
Foods contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled, but can still make you sick. Symptoms may include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle pain, severe headache, and stiff neck.
What you should do: Do not consume, serve, use, sell or distribute the recalled products. Meat products should be discarded or returned to where purchased. Contact your health care provider if you think you have become ill after consuming a recalled product.
