Children Safety Information
Welcome to our Website!
Due to the ever-increasing importance of children's health issues, Children's Health and Safety Association's mission is to continue the work that Children's Safety Association of Canada has accomplished for the past twenty years and provide up-to-date and vital health information for every concerned parent.
Our children's eating habits have changed so much that heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and a myriad of other adult diseases are plaguing them at an unforeseen rate - and the statistics are staggering. One in four young children in Canada are overweight or obese and only 7% get the recommended sixty minutes of exercise daily. We will address children's health issues and concerns as a proactive measure to help sustain children's health and well-being and exemplify why parents can no longer afford to be complacent with processed food.
ANGELCARE BABY MONITORS LINKED TO TWO DEATHS – November 23, 2013 - Health Canada and the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission have recalled several models of Angelcare baby monitors after two U.S. infant girls died from strangulation in 2004 and 2011 and currently, two non-fatal incidences were reported. There are no reported injuries or deaths in Canada.
The cord that is attached to the monitor’s sensor pad is placed under the mattress, which poses a strangulation risk if the cord is pulled into the crib by the infant and it becomes wrapped around the neck.
Approximately 182,173 of the recalled products were sold in Canada from 2003 to November 2013 and 600,000 were sold in the United States from 1999 to September 2013. The monitors were manufactured in China and sold at various Canadian & U.S. retailers including Babies R' Us, Toys R' Us, Burlington Coat Factory, Meijer, Sears, Wal-Mart, Amazon.com, Target.com, Overstock.com and about 70 baby specialty stores.

TWO ONTARIO DEATHS LINKED TO 'Bodico Hand Sanitizer' October 24, 2013 – Health Canada is warning people not to use 'Bodico Hand Sanitizer' after two recent deaths in Ontario have been linked to the product. Ontario’s Centre for Forensic Sciences has found that two bottles of the product associated with the deaths contained methanol, which is not identified as an ingredient on the label.
Testing of Bodico Hand Sanitizer, 8 fluid ounce, Lot B9002 and Bodico Hand Sanitizer with Aloe and Vitamin E, 8 fluid ounce, B9001 have found methanol which is highly toxic and if ingested can be fatal. Even if it is used on the skin it can cause irritation and inflammation.
Health Canada reminds Canadians that hand sanitizers are for external use only and should never be ingested. It was not immediately clear how common the brand is and in what parts of the country it is sold.
