Health Canada is warning people to stop using Colgate Motion Electric Toothbrushes after reports they "exploded," but the devices might still be available in stores.
The manufacturer, Colgate-Palmolive, is recalling the battery-operated devices after nine reports from Canadians that the toothbrushes "exploded."
CBC News was able to purchase the toothbrush Thursday morning in a P.E.I. store's "blowout sale."
Health Canada announced the recall on Wednesday, but noted the toothbrushes may still be found on shelves until the recall is completed.
Colgate-Palmolive said there have been no long-term injuries. The company is no longer manufacturing the device and has pulled the licence for the toothbrush's sale in Canada.
