Health Canada reports of a recall involving a children's craft apron sold under the name "Time 4 Crafts Kid's Apron". The apron contains a phthalate, specifically DEHP (Di-Ethylhexyl Phthalate), which exceeds the allowable limit. Studies suggest that certain phthalates, including DEHP, may cause reproductive and developmental abnormalities in young children when soft vinyl products containing phthalates are sucked or chewed for extended periods.
See Products tab for specifics on the affected items.
Recalled aprons were sold at various dollar and discount stores across Canada from February 2008 to January 2012.
Corrective Action:Consumers should immediately take the product from children and dispose of it in regular household garbage.
