Recalled Products

Important: If you supply products for sale on Amazon, you must comply with all federal, provincial, and local laws and Amazon policies applicable to those products and product listings.

Because Amazon wants to ensure that products offered through the website are safe, listings for any products recalled by any importer or manufacturer of a product, by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), Transport Canada or by any other government agency are prohibited. Sellers must conduct proper research to ensure that their listings comply with applicable local, provincial, federal and international laws and regulations. For purposes of this document, the term "listing" refers to live ASINs as well as offerings matched to product pages on the Amazon website. Sellers also should review carefully the "Examples of Permitted and Prohibited Listings" and "Additional Useful Information" sections below before listing an item.

The material provided below is for informational purposes and is not intended as legal advice. Sellers are responsible to ensure that their products are legal and authorized for listing. Sellers are encouraged to consult with their legal counsel.

Examples of prohibited listings

  • Listings for items recalled by the importer/manufacturers of the product, the CFIA or other government agency, including but not limited to
    • Recalled foods containing tainted peanuts or pistachios
    • Recalled toys
