According to Health Canada, its inspection program has found the recalled Lubricating Fluids were not sold with the required child-resistant closures and do not have proper hazard labelling required by the Consumer Chemicals and Containers Regulations, 2001 (CCCR, 2001) under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA).

The lack of required warnings and lack of child-resistant closures could lead to improper use or storage of the product and present a risk of injury to children and others.

The recalled Lubricating Fluids were sold in Canada from February 2012 to January 2017.
