A shopping list of products have been seized from a Richmond store by Health Canada, amid warnings of them posing “serious health risks.”
Health Canada revealed on Monday that it has seized “unauthorized health products” from the Tokyo Beauty and Healthcare store on Westminster Highway at Cooney Road.
The government agency said the store was selling products that were labelled to contain prescription, controlled or over-the-counter drugs, with one of them - Baibao Neng Gold A for Relief of Cold Symptoms - containing an opioid.
What to do:
Do not use these products. Buy your prescription drugs only from licensed pharmacies. Return products to your local pharmacy for proper disposal. Consult a health care professional if you have used any of these products and have health concerns. If you suspect an opioid overdose, call 911 and administer naloxone if available. Report any health product-related side effects or complaints to Health Canada.
