We have been telling everyone that would listen that we expected to see a rise in Health Canada actions against non-compliant products. Our predictions appear to have been correct – in July there have already been 3 product recalls of consumer chemical products due to incorrect hazard labelling and packaging. In the 6 prior months of 2008, there were exactly 2. The full list of product recalls is available here. The product types were as follows:

  • July 2008 – Spray on Foundation – Label lacked necessary hazard symbols and text
  • July 2008 – 6 Liquid Dish Soaps – Labels lacked necessary warning symbols and text
  • July 2008 – Aerosol Hair Product – Label lacked necessary warning label
  • May 2008 – 7 Home Fragrances – Label lacked necessary warning label
  • April 2008 – Fabric Cleaner – Container lacked child safety cap

If you are have any doubts about the compliancy of your chemical products, please do not hesitate to contact us. More information about our label review services can be found here:
