This product recall is brought to you by Health Canada.



Health Canada’s sampling and evaluation program has revealed that the recalled paint and pigment contain lead and do not have the required warning statements for lead on their labels. Paints used by adults in arts, crafts or hobbies that contain lead over a specified level are required by Canadian law to have bilingual warning statements on their labels.


The lack of appropriate English and French warnings on the label could result in the products being used improperly, and thereby unintentionally exposing the user to lead. Lead is a toxic heavy metal and can cause adverse health effects if ingested.


Neither Health Canada nor Kama Pigments has received reports of incidents or injuries to Canadians related to the use of the recalled products.


Approximately 230 units of the recalled products were sold in Canada.


The recalled products were sold from January 2009 to December 2013.


Consumers should stop using the recalled products and contact the manufacturer, Kama Pigments, at 1-866-972-2173 to obtain a corrective label.
