According to Health Canada, the recalled Varathane branded Bar & Table Finish products do not meet Canada’s labelling and child-resistant packaging requirements required by the Consumer Chemicals and Containers Regulations, 2001 under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act. The lack of child-resistant packaging could result in unintentional exposure to these products and lead to serious illness, injury or death.

Specifically, these Varathane branded Bar & Table Finish products are intended to be a single-use product. It’s packaging however, lacks the required warning indicating it is a single-use product. Due to the lack of a child-resistant closure, once the product is opened, it presents a risk of unintentional poisoning, ingestion and/or skin irritation and/or adhesion. If these defects occur, it could lead to serious illness, injury or death.
