==> No 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.

These Charcoal products are thought to have been marketed, distributed and sold in all Canadian provinces although it is always possible these fuel products had wider distribution outside the country. When in doubt, please contact the manufacturer for specific product information.

According to Health Canada, its sampling and evaluation program has revealed that the Lumber Jack Premium Hardwood Lump Charcoal products do not meet the warning label requirements under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (“CCPSA”). Specifically, the CCPSA requires warning labels be in both French and English. The recalled Lumber Jack Premium Hardwood Lump Charcoal does not have a French warning label.

Charcoal, when burned, produces colourless, odourless Carbon Monoxide gas. This gas can be toxic if it is burned inside the home or in another area without proper ventilation. If this situation occurs, it posies a suffocation hazard to people who utilize the product in a reasonable manner expected with its intended design and anticipated use. Warning labels help to protect people by telling them about this hazard.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Hardwood Lump Charcoal products, please do not use them. Instead, kindly contact Lumber Jack Distributor Canada Inc. for a corrected bilingual warning label.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 9-1-1, your closest hospital or emergency center equipped to properly treat suffocation, Carbon Monoxide (“CO”) poisoning, and/or respiratory and/or cardiac collapse.
