==> No barcodes, UPCs, DINs, item numbers, best-before date codes, manufacturing date codes, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

According to Health Canada, the Arena Swim Snorkel Pro II has excess material inside the burr (i.e., the breathing tube) and the Swim Snorkel II has excess material inside the mouthpiece that could detach from the inner side of the tube during usage, posing consequential risks of choking, oral injury, internal ingestion, GI tract laceration damage and bowel obstruction.

In general, if plastic or metal fragments are ingested, they could cut the mouth, stomach or other parts of the GI tract, cause intestinal perforation or serious infection and possibly require surgical intervention for their safe removal.
