Buying second-hand: Internet, yard sales & flea markets
Be aware of potential risks and ask questions to make sure your “perfect find” is safe to use. You should avoid items that are: banned, such as baby walkers and feeding devices for baby bottles, or damaged, or missing labelling or instructions.
Some second-hand products can be dangerous even if they seem harmless. Be extra cautious, especially when buying children's items, such as: bunk beds, child car seats, children's jewellery, children's sleepwear, playpens, cribs, cradles and bassinets, plus strollers and carriages.
Stay on top of recalls. If you need to find out if a product has been recalled, you can contact the retailer or manufacturer or check for recent recalls and safety alerts. For more information visit:< https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/buying-second-hand-products.html >
