    Unauthorized kratom products seized from Culture Rising store in Milton, ON

    OTTAWA, July 7, 2017 /CNW/ -


    Issue
    Health Canada is advising Canadians that it has seized several unauthorized kratom products from Culture Rising at 1248 Main St E, Milton, ON. Kratom may pose serious health risks when swallowed or inhaled.


    Health Canada has not authorized the sale any product containing kratom. It is illegal to sell any health products in Canada without authorization from Health Canada. The Department advises consumers not to swallow or inhale products labeled to contain kratom because of the potential side effects, including liver and heart problems.

    What consumers should do


    Stop using these products. Consult with your health care professional if you have used any of these products and have health concerns.
    Read product labels to verify that health products have been authorized for sale by Health Canada. Authorized health products have an eight-digit Drug Identification Number (DIN), Natural Product Number (NPN) or Homeopathic Drug Number (DIN-HM). You can also check whether products have been authorized for sale by searching Health Canada's Drug Product Database and Licensed Natural Health Product Database.

    What Health Canada is doing
    Health Canada seized the products from the retail location. Should additional retailers or distributors be identified, Health Canada will take appropriate action and inform Canadians as necessary. Health Canada is also working with the Canada Border Services Agency to stop kratom products from entering Canada illegally.


    Background
    Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) is a herbal product that may pose serious health risks when swallowed or inhaled. Side effects include drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, seizures, liver toxicity and excessively rapid heartbeat. Kratom has been linked to both narcotic and stimulant-like effects, and has potential for abuse and dependence.
