Canada: Recall of Cannabis for Medical Purposes – Aphria (English Only)
Health Canada announces that Aphria, a licensed producer of cannabis for medical purposes located in Ontario, began a voluntary Type III recall of two lots of dried marijuana that were produced between 19 Jan 2018 and 22 Jan 2018. The affected lot numbers are 1256-6712 and 1256-6714. Aphria initiated a voluntary Type III recall for two lots of dried marijuana sold in 10g bottles due to a labelling error. The labels omitted to indicate the percent sign (%) next to the numerical values for cannabinoid content. 

A Type III recall refers to a situation in which the use of, or exposure to, a product is not likely to cause any adverse health consequences. 

To date, Health Canada has not received any adverse reaction reports for products sold by Aphria.
