Health products manufactured by Konsar Future Nutrition Inc. may pose serious health risks

Health Canada is warning Canadians that all products manufactured by Konsar Future Nutrition Inc. may pose serious health risks. Health Canada inspected the manufacturing site (located in Dollard‑des‑Ormeaux, Quebec) and found serious unsanitary conditions and quality control issues. 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.

Health Canada suspends Allergan’s licences for its Biocell breast implants after safety review concludes an increased risk of cancer

OTTAWA – Health Canada has completed an update to a 2017 safety review on breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) and has found that the rate of BIA-ALCL in Canada is significantly higher in patients with macro-textured breast implants compared to other implants. As a result, because the potential risks associated with the implants outweigh their benefits, including the rare but serious risk of BIA-ALCL, Health Canada has suspended the licences for Allergan’s Biocell breast implants (the only macro-textured implants available in Canada).
