Health Canada recall: Eccles stepladder and The Good and the Beautiful Math 1 and Math 3 boxes
Health Canada recalled Eccles stepladders due to a fall hazard and The Good and the Beautiful Math 1 and Math 3 boxes with metal whiteboards due to a laceration hazard.
The affected Eccles stepladders are height adjustable with a universal product code of 752771822557 and a Wayfair model number of w005218634. The step stool is made of bamboo and is sold in white, brown and wood.
According to the health agency, the stepladder’s platform has the potential to crack when in use, posing a fall hazard.
The affected product was manufactured in China and 127 of them were sold in Canada from April 2021 to March 2023, Health Canada said in the advisory released Thursday.
As of May 10, 2023, the company had received one incident report in Canada and one injury report.
The health agency asks consumers to immediately stop using the step stool and contact Longquan Chuanghui Household Products Co., LTD for a replacement or a full refund.
The recalled The Good and the Beautiful boxes include lids with attached metal whiteboards labeled Math 1 or Math 3. These labels are located on the lids, bottom, left and right sides of the boxes.
Health Canada advises that the whiteboard attached to the boxes can detach, potentially exposing sharp edges and creating a laceration hazard. However, as of May 17, 2023, no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada have been recorded by the company.
The health agency says 1,820 box units were sold in Canada from August 2021 to November 2022.
In the United States, the company has received four reports of whiteboards detaching from boxes and causing minor lacerations.
Health Canada is urging consumers to take action immediately by throwing away the boxes and contacting Le Bon et le Beau. Consumers can contact the company directly to receive a free non-metallic replacement.
