Some Viceroy Cigarettes Recalled Due To Fire Hazard


Health Canada’s sampling and evaluation program has determined the recalled cigarettes do not meet the performance standards required by the Cigarette Ignition Propensity (Consumer Products) Regulations under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act.

The Cigarette Ignition Propensity (Consumer Products) Regulations require that when tested, all cigarettes manufactured in or imported into Canada must burn their full length no more than 25% of the time. Cigarettes that do not meet the performance requirements pose an increased fire hazard. Cigarettes that are dropped onto furniture, bedding or other textile products may cause a fire to start.

As of May 10, 2022, the company has received no reports of incidents and no reports of injuries in Canada.

This recall involves Viceroy Full (Viceroy Original), Regular Size, 20 cigarettes. The following provides information on the UPCs and traceability codes for the specific recalled products in their individual packages and cartons. The traceability code for the individual cigarette packages is located on the bottom of the pack and for the cigarette cartons, it is located on the side of the carton.
