Marijuana Recall In Canada
Canada follows very strict guidelines when it comes to marijuana distribution. If a strain is mislabeled, tests for mold or is considered to strong, it will get recalled. Health Canada issued its first recall of 2015 against the Ontario-based Peace Naturals Project.
The inspection conducted by Health Canada resulted in two batches of medical marijuana being listed as having a lower THC percentage than it actually had. The label stated that the strain had 9.07% THC but when retested, had up to 13.7%. Although the company and the health department did not receive any reports of complaints or unfavorable effects, the strains have both been recalled.
The department will continue to put forth strict rule enforcement to regulate the production and distribution of medical marijuana throughout the country. Health Canada has since announced four more recalls of the product to ensure quality and safety.
