Health Canada is issuing a recall on various Baby Float toys that were sold between 2003 and 2009. Approximately 300,000 of the recalled products were sold at various retailers in Canada. Major retailers include Walmart, Shoppers Drug Mart, Home Hardware, Canadian Tire, Zellers, Samko, Toys ‘R’ Us, and Loblaws.

The manufacturer of these toys is Aqua-Leisure Industries of Avon, Massachusettes.

Hazard: The leg straps in the seat of the float can tear, causing children to unexpectedly fall into or under the water, posing a risk of drowning.

I’m sure there are a lot of Winnipegers with these. We have an amazing weekend ahead of us so before you head to the beach make sure to check if your float toy is on this list.

If you have one, you should contact Aqua-Leisure Industries for a full refund. They can be contacted at 1-866-807-3998 or by going to their website.
