Health products from Konsar Future Nutrition may pose serious health risksChristian Fernsby ▼ | June 1, 2019
Health Canada is warning Canadians that all products manufactured by Konsar Future Nutrition may pose serious health risks.
Canadian health Konsar Future Nutrition
As a result, Health Canada has suspended the company's site licence and all 101 of its product licences, which means the company is no longer permitted to manufacture or sell its products in Canada.
The product licences were for a range of natural health products, mainly vitamins and supplements for health and fitness, bodybuilding and weight management.
The products may be labelled as "manufactured by Konsar Future Nutrition Inc." and sold under various brand names (see list below).
Problems found at the site include widespread unsanitary conditions, such as rust on the equipment and cracks in the walls and floors.
In addition, the Department found a lack of adequate quality control measures to ensure product quality and safety, including a lack of measures related to product testing, product stability (shelf life), and record-keeping.
At Health Canada's request, the manufacturer has stopped selling its products and has been asked to recall all of them.
Given the company's poor record-keeping, it is possible that it will not be able to contact all customers to notify them of the recall of its products, and stock may still be available at some retail stores and online.
As a result, Health Canada is advising retail and online sellers that the sale of these products is illegal. ■
