Canada/Ottawa: Rock On Rock Candles recalls an estimated 1824 Rock On Rock Candles due to suspected failure to meet labelling and packaging requirements for consumer chemical products as set out in Canada’s Consumer Chemicals and Containers Regulations, 2001 issued under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act and consequential aspiration, pulmonary injury, chemical pneumonia and death hazards. HCSC: http://ht.ly/CRxZ30a6lUb
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports the following Candle Products are subject to this recall:
- Rock On Rock Candle, consisting of an oil-burning fibreglass wick with ferrule that extends through a flat-shaped rock into a tin reservoir attached underneath the rock. Each Rock Candle has is irregularly shaped and may have between one (1) and four (4) reservoirs and wicks in the same Rock.
Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation. One (1) additional image of the recalled Candles can be found on the Web site above.
==> No barcodes, UPCs, item numbers or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.
According to Health Canada, this Open Flame Candle Product is designed to be used with Liquid Paraffin Oil and Citronella Oil and, as a result, the company offered the recommended Liquid Paraffin Oil for sale at the time of purchasing the Rock Candle.
However, 99% pure Liquid Paraffin Oil and Citronella Oil can pose a danger to human health, especially to children, if aspiration occurs. Aspiration occurs when the product is coughed up or vomited after being ingested. This coughing/vomiting cycle causes small particles of the Oils to travel into the lungs and may result in severe health effects including pulmonary injury, chemical pneumonia or death.
The Rock Candle intended to contain the fuel does not display the required warning information and is not supplied with the required child resistant closures.
==> You can continue to safely use the Rock Candles with 100% pure peanut oil, just not the original oils as sold.
If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Rock Candles, please do not use them with liquid paraffin oil and citronella oil and ensure they are not storing residual liquid paraffin oil nor citronella oil in the Candle.
The Rock Candles, however, can continue to be used with 100% Peanut Oil. All products that have an open flame and a source of fuel – including this one – should be kept out of reach of children at all times.
If you have any questions about this recall notification, please contact Rock On Rock Candles at 1-902-830-9565 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Atlantic Standard Time, Monday to Friday. Alternatively, you can visit the company’s Web site at http://www.rockonrockcandles.ca or by e-mail at email@example.com.
Please note: the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act prohibits recalled products from being redistributed, sold or even given away in Canada.
