Health Canada recalls YETI coolers over ingestion hazard

Health Canada has recalled four YETI coolers and one gear case after a case of the magnets coming off was reported in Canada.

The US company, which specializes in outdoor travel products such as mugs and lunch bags, said the following products were reported to be at risk of magnets detaching from its lined closures: Hopper 1.0 M30 Soft Cooler (tote style); Hopper® 2.0 M30 Soft Cooler (tote style); Hopper® M20 Soft Backpack Cooler; and Sidekick Dry® Gear Case/Pouch

The affected products were sold between March 2018 and January 2023, with 40,762 sold in Canada and approximately 1.9 million purchased in the United States.

A report released by Health Canada on Thursday advised consumers who purchased the affected products to stop using them immediately because they could pose a risk of “serious injury or death” if swallowed. It urged people with the product to contact YETI Canada for a replacement product or gift card of equal or greater value.

There have been no reports of human ingestion or injury to magnets in Canada or the United States. However, there have been 1,399 cases of magnets disconnecting or disappearing in the US, compared to one in Canada.

Consumers can contact YETI Canada by phone, email or at their home address website to receive a replacement product or gift card.
