“Major Recalls of KIA Vehicles, Bags of PC-Brand Chocolate-Covered Raisins, and Supplement Gummies in Canada

If you’ve recently purchased a KIA vehicle, bags of PC-brand chocolate-covered raisins, or certain vitamin and supplement gummies, you’ll want to pay close attention to some recent recalls that have been issued for these products. These recalls have been made due to various health and safety risks associated with these items, prompting the government to take immediate action in the interest of public safety.”

“KIA Vehicles at Risk of Fire Hazard

One of the most significant and alarming recalls pertains to over 275,000 KIA vehicles in Canada, which have been flagged for potential brake issues that could result in a fire hazard. According to Transport Canada, certain KIA Sportage, Optima, Forte, Forte Koup, Rondo, Borrego, Sorento, Soul, Rio, Cadenza, and K900 models sold between 2010 and 2017 may be affected by this safety concern. The brake hydraulic electronic control unit on these vehicles could short circuit, creating a fire risk even when the vehicle is turned off and parked. This has prompted Transport Canada to take the significant step of recalling these vehicles to address and rectify these potential dangers.”

“Chocolate Covered Raisins & Vitamin Gummies Recalled

Bags of PC Milk Chocolate Covered Raisins have also been the subject of a recall due to ‘undeclared’ almonds in the product. This poses a serious risk for consumers with nut allergies who may inadvertently consume these raisins. Health Canada advises consumers to either dispose of or return these products if they have been purchased, to avoid potential allergic reactions due to these undeclared ingredients.”

“Additionally, the Herbaland brand gummy vitamins and supplements, including the Herbaland Vegan Omega 3 Gummy for children, the Calm Gummy for adults, and the Herbaland Pre-workout Gummy for adults have been recalled by Health Canada. The reason for this recall is ‘inadequate product labeling,’ prompting consumers to take caution and consult health care professionals if they have concerns about these products.”

“Subarus and Blinds also Affected

The recall list extends beyond KIA vehicles, chocolate-covered raisins, and vitamin gummies, as models of Subaru vehicles have also been identified as problematic. The Subaru WRX 2023 and the 2024 Impreza, Forester, and Crosstrek have been found to have powertrain issues that could cause these vehicles to roll away while parked, posing significant safety risks.”

“Furthermore, blinds sold under the brand HT Blinds in Canada have been flagged by Health Canada as a strangulation risk for young children. The Corded Window Coverings Regulations state that these blinds do not meet safety requirements, potentially leaving children in danger of injury or harm.”

“Closing Thoughts

As a consumer, staying informed about product recalls is crucial for safeguarding yourself and your family from potential health and safety risks. If you suspect that you may have purchased any of these recalled products, be sure to follow the guidance provided by the government and respective manufacturers to resolve the situation. Additionally, it’s important to consider the broader implications of these recalls, highlighting the need for enhanced quality control and public welfare measures to prevent similar incidents in the future.”
