Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports the following Air Blow Gun Kits are subject to this recall:

  • The 5-piece Air Blow Gun Kit contains a gun base, three (3) nozzle attachments and one (1) rubber-tipped attachment. An estimated 2,400 units of the 5-piece Air Blow Gun Kit were sold in Canada from December 2015 to December 2016.
  • The 17-piece Air Accessory Kit has a gun base with many attachments. Approximately 16,000 units of the 17-piece Air Blow Gun Kit were sold in Canada from December 2014 to December 2016.

The packaging for each kit is identical: both kits are packaged in card-backed, plastic bubble packs with yellow, blue and black colours.

==> No barcodes, UPCs, item numbers or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

According to Health Canada, the Air Blow Gun Kits have been recalled for a defect with the connector threading. Specifically, the threads for the attachment form an unsafe, loose connection. Under pressure, this is a hazard because the attachment may loosen from the gun base and become a projectile.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Air Blow Gun Kit, please do not use them. Instead, kindly return the product to Princess Auto for a full refund.
