Additional information:
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports this recall involves the Vector Pro 700 gram (1-1/2 pound) Hatchet. The recalled Hatchet can be identified by its Item Number “576” and UPC code of “7-7354400576-2”. The Hatchet itself is 38 centimetres (15 inches) long and the Vector Pro trademark can be seen on the side of the Hatchet blade.

According to HCSC, hammering or chopping with the recalled Vector Pro Hatchet can create a force upon impact that may cause the head of the Hatchet to come loose and come out of the handle. If this occurs, it could pose a laceration hazard to the user or those nearby.
