Consumer Product Enforcement Summary Reports
By: Kirsten Alcock, Principal Product Safety Consultant, email
Last week Health Canada sent out information regarding four new Consumer Product Enforcement Summary Reports that are now available to the public on Health Canada’s Consumer Product Safety website.
One that we were not surprised to see was a report on Flame Jetting. Over the past year or so, there have been many compliance projects regarding the pourable alcohol-based fuels and their requirements for sale under the Consumer Chemicals and Containers Regulations, 2001 (CCCR, 2001).
Consumer products that pose a danger to human health or safety are prohibited for sale in Canada under sections 7 and 8 of the CCPSA (Canada Consumer Product Safety Act).
Health Canada believes that certain containers of these types of pourable alcohol-based fuel products that do not have a functional mitigation device (FMD) for the useful life of the product are a danger to the Canadian public.
In total, 15 products were assessed which resulted in 3 recalls and 1 voluntary commitment to address the non-compliance.
