Health Canada on Thursday announced a recall of certain ice shelters because they failed to meet flammability standards.
The recall affects the PE-1 Polar Escape Express and the PE-2 Escape Magnum sold in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec.
Health Canada also noted the shelters lack flammability warning labels.
No associated incidents or injuries have been reported.
About 245 shelters have been sold in Canada.
The tents were made in China.
Consumers should stop using the shelters and contact the company for replacement parts.
