Health Canada Recalls One Lot Of Eldo Dried Cannabis

Canada's health regulator has recalled a lot of Eldo dried cannabis as it may contain mould.

Health Canada said Friday that the recall involves one lot of Eldo dried cannabis created by Ontario-based Up Cannabis Inc., with a specific packaging date of November 28, 2018 and sold through the Alberta Gaming Liquor & Cannabis Commission. The recalled lot number is 1204201.

Health Canada noted that about 1,428 units of one lot of 7 grams dried cannabis jars sold throughout Canada may be affected. The recalled product was sold between November 29, 2018 and January 4, 2019.

The affected product may contain mould, Health Canada noted. In certain individuals, exposure to mould can result in allergic symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, wheezing, runny nose or nasal congestion. It can also cause watery eyes or itchy eyes.

The use of, or exposure to a mouldy product may cause temporary adverse health consequences, where the probability of serious adverse health consequences is remote.

Health Canada said that that to date, no complaints have been received related to the recalled lot and it has not received any adverse reaction reports for the recalled product.

The regulator advised consumers who have purchased the affected product to return it to the retailer they purchased the product from, for a full refund. If purchased online at AlbertaCannabis.org, consumers must contact the Alberta Cannabis Call Centre.

Up Cannabis is a subsidiary of Newstrike Brands Ltd, a licensed producer of cannabis licensed to both cultivate and sell cannabis in all acceptable forms.

In December, Health Canada recalled two separate stains of Bonify dried cannabis as the recalled products had record keeping issues with production documents that may not meet the requirements under the Cannabis Regulations. Some of the recalled lots also had a labeling error where the cannabinoid values are reversed.
