Health Canada issues safety alert for Eco-Med Pharmaceutical products

Due to potential bacterial contamination
Health Canada headquarters in Ottawa

Health Canada has issued a safety alert for every single product manufactured by a Toronto-based company. 

It applies to Eco-Med Pharmaceutical in Etobicoke and includes ultrasound gels, transmission and massage lotions, first aid antiseptics, and hand sanitizers. 

The national health agency said anyone who bought any products by Eco-Med should stop using them and throw them out. 

It's due to potential bacterial contamination with Burkholderia stabilis. 

Those who already used the products are advised to consult a health care professional if they are feeling unwell. 

Health Canada said it has also suspended the company's licences to manufacture and sell health products based on the safety issues.
