Health Canada recalls flame colouring product

Health Canada has announced the recall of a batch of Wildfire flame colouring product.

The products, which are used to tint wood-burning fires in different colours, did not have government-mandated labelling or child-resistant packaging.

Health Canada warns that without appropriate labelling or packaging, the product can be misused, which could lead to illness or injury.

The colouring was sold from 2006 to April 2009 in 180-gram triangular boxes, and can be identified by UPC code 6 22306 90330 6.

About 1,460 of the products, all of which were sold in Alberta, are affected by the recall.

Health Canada has not received any reports of illness or injury caused by use of the products, but it has received one complaint.
