Health Canada warns against grinding wheel

Health Canada has issued a recall notice concerning seven-inch anflex grinding wheels used in automotive bodywork.

The product, sold in packages of five by Princess Auto Ltd. stores, might break apart upon use and cause injury.

The agency is aware of one incident where pieces from a wheel flew off and struck the user, resulting in a minor injury. No medical attention was necessary.

Winnipeg-based Princess Auto is voluntarily recalling the 2,000 wheels, product No. 8190589, sold between February and November 2008 in company stores across Canada.

Consumers returning the wheels will receive full refunds, the recall notice said.
