Latest Canadian Product Recalls
Posted on behalf of Greg Monforton & Partners Injury Lawyers on Oct 30, 2013 in General Interest
During the month of October alone, there have been over a dozen recalls on items throughout Canada. These products were recalled due to something not working correctly, or that could cause harm to an individual if they have been consumed. Therefore, as responsible members of our community, our defective product solicitors have decided to create a list of recent recalls and alerts in order to inform our community of such dangers.
Some of these recalls and alerts include:
Transport Canada issued a recall on the SETRA S 407 CC, S417, and S417TC models of batteries which are used on most coach busses.
