Lunchboxes recalled for poisoning hazard
California Innovations Inc. recently issued a recall of their thermal and insulated lunch boxes. The recall includes 248,000 of the company’s Expandable Insulated Lunch Box with Freezer Gel Pack and Travelin’ Chef Expandable Thermal Food Carrier.
The lunch boxes were sold at Costco Wholesale Clubs, Walmart, Leon Korol, and Cost U Less stores. According to California Innovations and the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the gel packs in the recalled lunchboxes contain ethylene glycol and diethylene glycol, which can be toxic if consumed.
If the gel packs become damaged, the chemicals can leak into the box and onto food, creating a poisoning hazard for children and adults using the lunchboxes. The company has received two reports of dogs biting the gel packs. Both dogs became ill and one died.
