Be Aware: Health Canada Continues to Issue Product Recalls
By: Ivy Tang, Product Safety Specialist, email
Although Health Canada has been busy implementing interim measures to accelerate public access to hand sanitizers and hard surface disinfectants, please be aware that product safety enforcement is still underway. Health Canada regularly publishes Public Advisories, Information Updates, Safety Alerts, and Product Recalls online. Recalls and alerts are categorized under Consumer, Food, and Health Products, and may be found here.
During the recall process, Health Canada may request documentation and classification records, test reports, reference materials, and container specifications. You will also need to provide information on the number of units sold, the time period of the sale(s), and all the model numbers affected by the recall.
If your consumer product has been issued a recall, Dell Tech can assist with bringing it back into compliance. Dell Tech offers performance testing, consultation on labeling and packaging specifications, and can advise on reformulation. We can also communicate with Health Canada on your behalf, to ensure that your product can safely be sold to consumers again. Recalls can be costly to your company’s bottom line and brand recognition. Let Dell Tech be the one-stop shop for your compliance needs.
