Recall - President's Choice Popcorn Maker

Web posted on August 08, 2016

This recall involves the President's Choice Vintage Popcorn Maker (UPC 058703285682). The product has a 3.5L/15 cup capacity in a red-striped wagon design, with a lid convertible as a serving bowl and a built-in butter warmer/dispenser.

The affected product has an invalid certification mark that can be identified by its cord with a 2-prong plug and a model number PC1502 300/PGT-P01 located on a silver label on the bottom of the unit.

PC Popcorn makers that have a cord with a 3-prong are NOT recalled.

During the insertion of a non-grounded plug, some outlets may short circuit resulting in a spark, posing a potential shock or fire hazard to consumers. Consumers should immediately stop using the product that has a 2-prong plug and return the product to any Loblaw banner store for a full refund (including without a receipt).

Neither Health Canada nor Loblaws Companies Ltd has received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries to Canadians related to the use of this product.

The recalled product was sold from July 2015 to June 2016. Approximately 700 units of the recalled popcorn makers were sold at Loblaw Companies Ltd banner stores across Canada.

The popcorn maker was manufactured in China and distributed through Loblaws Companies Limited, Brampton, Ontario.

For additional information, consumers may contact Loblaws Companies Ltd. customer service at 1-888-495-5111 from Monday to Friday between 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. EST, or by email.
