Health Canada is advising consumers to obtain updated user instructions for the Baby Bullet Food System.
The updated instructions remind consumers to make sure that the system's silicone gasket is installed correctly before each use. If not installed correctly, the gasket can come into contact with the moving blades, get cut into pieces, and mixed into the food. The resulting pieces are not likely to pose a choking hazard and are not toxic if ingested. The instructions also now indicate that the blade assembly, other plastic parts and gaskets be hand-washed to prevent the gasket from becoming loose.
