According to Health Canada, its sampling and evaluation program project has found that the Senso brand Charcoal does not meet the warning label requirements under Canadian Law.

Charcoal, when burned, produces carbon monoxide as well as other dangerous chemicals. Carbon monoxide (“CO”) is both tasteless and odourless, and can be toxic if it is burned inside or in an area without proper ventilation where levels of CO can rise to lethal concentrations within a short period of time. Warning labels help to protect the public by telling them about this hazard.

Neither Senso Group Building Supplies nor Health Canada have received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries to Canadians related to the use of this product.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Senso brand Charcoal, please do not use it. Instead, immediately contact Senso Group Building Supplies at 1-416-658-8300 for information on how to receive a corrective label so the product can be used in a safe manner.

As estimated 10,987 units of the 10 kilogram bag and 15,789 units of the 15 kilogram bag were sold in the Greater Toronto Area (“GTA”).
