Product Recalls:

“Feather Witch” Halloween Costume – August 21, 2012 (expansion of a previous recall)

This costume does not meet the requirements for textile flammability under Canadian law. The costume can easily catch fire.  Please do not let children wear it and dispose of the costume.

This was sold in Canada from January 2007 – September 2011 in various retail and novelty stores in Ontario and Quebec.


Wilson & Fisher White Cast 3-piece Bistro Set – August 23, 2012

Apparently the chairs in this set can break when weight is placed on them.  How much weight?  I have no idea.

745 of these sets were sold in Canada at Liquidation World between November 2011 and May 2012.
Consumers can return the set to Liquidation World for a refund.  You can also contact Zest Garden at 1-800-893-3006 or info@zestgarden.com for more information.
