Notice about Health Canada advisories

Recalls are initiated by importers and manufacturers after recognizing that there may be a safety concern related to a specific health product. Health Canada works with the health product industry to ensure hazardous products are removed from the marketplace in an effective and efficient manner.

Although Health Canada grants market authorizations or licenses for therapeutic products, Health Canada does not endorse either the product or the company. If you have any questions regarding product information, you should discuss them with your health professional.
