Hazard Identified
Health Canada’s auditing process has revealed that the recalled products do not meet labelling requirements under Canadian law. The regular and cold-pressed linseed oils, stand oils and safflower oils lack the spontaneously combustible symbols 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.

This lack of labelling information, including appropriate warnings, may lead to serious injury.

Health Canada has not received any reports of incidents or injuries to Canadians related to the use of these products.


Corrective Action

Consumers should immediately stop using the products and return them to the place of purchase for a replacement label.
 After the replacement label is received and affixed on product, the product can be used safely again.

For more information, consumers may contact Demco at 1-800-361-2101.
