Hazard identified

The recalled Ayden vases and Mother vases do not meet the labelling requirements for consumer chemical products sold with the intention of being filled with a hazardous chemical product, as required by the Consumer Chemicals and Containers Regulations, 2001, under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act.

These products pose an aspiration hazard if they are filled with a hazardous chemical product which is then ingested. Aspiration occurs when the product is coughed up or vomited after being ingested. This coughing/vomiting could cause small particles of the product to travel into the lungs and may result in serious health effects.

The lack of appropriate labelling information could result in unintentional exposure to the chemical product and lead to serious illness or injury, including death.

As of June 14, 2021, the company has received no reports of incidents in Canada and no reports of injuries.

Approximately 19,978 units of the affected products were sold in Canada.
