Health Canada has determined that the recalled products are not packaged in a child-resistant container as required by Canadian law.

As the recalled products contain ingredients that pose an aspiration hazard, the products must be packaged in a child-resistant container. The lack of child-resistant packaging could result in unintentional aspiration toxicity if ingested by a child and may lead to serious injuries.

Neither Health Canada nor WD-40 Company (Canada) Ltd. has received any reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of these products.

Both products are manufactured and packaged in the United States by WD-40 Company and distributed in Canada through WD-40 Company (Canada) Ltd., Etobicoke, Ontario.

Approximately 2.3 million units of the WD-40 Multi-Use Product equipped with "Smart Straw" have been sold in Canada since 2006. Approximately 300,000 units of the 3-in-One Garage Door Lubricant equipped with "Smart Straw" have been sold in Canada since 2007.

The WD-40 Multi-Use Product equipped with "Smart Straw" was sold in Canada from 2006 to December 2013.

The 3-in-One Garage Door Lubricant equipped with "Smart Straw" was sold in Canada from 2007 to December 2013.
