Hazard identified

This household chemical does not meet the labelling and child-resistant packaging requirements for consumer chemical products as set out in the Consumer Chemicals and Containers Regulations, 2001 issued under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act.

This product contains a level of D-limonene that can pose a danger to human health, especially to children, if aspiration occurs. D-limonene is extracted from citrus fruit (such as orange peel), and is commonly used as an ingredient in cleaners and other household chemical products to provide a citrus smell. Aspiration occurs when the product is coughed up or vomited after being ingested. This coughing/vomiting causes small particles of the product to travel into the lungs and may result in severe health effects including pulmonary injury, chemical pneumonia or death.

Neither Health Canada nor Orange TKO Industries (Int’l) Inc. has received consumer incident reports related to the use of this product.

2997 of the affected products were sold in Canada from June 20, 2011 to present.

Time period sold

Manufactured in the United States of America.
