7. Describe symptoms and outcome (died, recovered, etc.).

Upon placing the product (OFF! POWERPAD MOSQUITO LAMP) on the back patio balcony, it was observed that plants and flowers (6 to 9) were weakened and indicated signs of not fresh or recovery. In few days after, several flowers in flower-pots died and remained in dry condition with no recovery. It was reported the product caused a death to several flowers in an area of 0.5 m around. The product was used anymore as a result of this incident. Date of incident is reported as not accurate. Reporter reports that it raises a concern what is effect of fumes and chemical of this product for long term exposure to human beings and animals if get in the contact or inhaled. The concern is also about possible pollution of air and transfer of chemical reactions to surrounded plants. This is the second example of aggressive impact of OFF products and I seek for Health Canada guidance to confirm if the OFF products are in compliance with the chemical substance regulations and that it declares no possible negative impact on human being. The product does not mention any negative impact on environment but it cause a death to several flowers and further effect on nature / human being to be confirmed.
