The recalled products do not have the proper consumer chemical hazard packaging and labelling required by the consumer Chemicals and Containers Regulations, 2001 under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act.
All products except Osmo Brush Cleaner and Thinner lack the spontaneously combustible symbol and warnings required for flammable consumer chemicals. Products identified as spontaneously combustible may cause rags and cloths used with the product to burn on their own.
Osmo Brush Cleaner and Thinner contains hydocarbons in a level that can pose a danger to human health, especially children, if aspiration occurs. 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.
