We know we have a lot of DIYers on SmartCanucks and we want to warn you that Michaels Canada is recalling its Ashland Holiday Paper Boxes. The circle, square and rectangular-shaped boxes are made of cardboard wrapped in decorative paper with ribbon accents or embellishments including burlap. Boxes come in 9 themes and 3 sizes: small, medium and large.
Reason for recall:
- Aspergillus mold was found on some of the boxes, posing a risk of respiratory or other infections in individuals with chronic health problems or weakened immune systems.
- 1,100 were sold in Canada.
- Consumers should bring the product, a photo of the product, or register receipt to any Michaels store for a refund.
Despite the recall, neither Health Canada nor Michaels has received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries to Canadians related to the use of the decorative boxes.
