Product Safety & Recalls

Injuries from consumer products are common and can be serious and sometimes even fatal. Most Canadians believe that if a product is for sale, then it must have been tested for safety, but this isn’t always the case, especially when talking about children’s products. Many consumer products, including those for children, do not meet standards or regulations, causing an increased risk to our children and youth. Parents need to keep in mind their child’s age, cognitive abilities and developmental stage when buying new and used children’s products.

Health Canada gives information about preventing your child from injuries in everyday situations such as using baby slings, baths, playpens and strollers and much more. Health Canada also maintains recall information about children’s products.
