Health Canada Expands Recall of Unsafe Caffeinated Energy Drinks

Health Canada Issues Wider Recall Due to Caffeine Content and Labelling Concerns

Health Canada has taken further steps to ensure consumer safety by expanding the recall of 45 caffeinated energy drinks. This recall encompasses products that have been deemed unsafe due to issues related to caffeine content and labelling.

Expanding the Recall

The latest update, issued on December 22nd, extends the recall to include products lacking bilingual labelling. Additionally, it covers all varieties of ABE, Bleach T4-F, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Stardust Crusaders, Juvee, One Piece, Operation Phoenix, and Up Time.

Notable Brands Affected

Several well-known brands, including 5 Hour, AriZona, Monster, Prime, and Red Bull, had previously been subject to recalls for similar concerns dating back as far as July 12.

A Matter of Compliance

In Canada, strict regulations govern the caffeine content of energy drinks, stipulating that they must not exceed 180 mg in a single serving. Furthermore, these products are required to provide information about the safe daily intake and include cautionary statements to protect children.

Imported Products under Scrutiny

Health Canada emphasized that the majority of the recalled products were neither manufactured nor intended for sale in Canada. Instead, they were imported by third parties and distributed across the country. Health Canada reassured the public that compliant products meeting Canadian standards are available and unaffected by the recall.

No Reported Illnesses

Notably, Health Canada stated that these recalls were initiated following inspections by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA). As of now, there have been no reported cases of illness or adverse reactions associated with these products.

Consumer Advisory

Individuals in possession of the recalled energy drinks are strongly advised not to consume, use, sell, serve, or distribute them. Ensuring consumer safety remains a top priority for Health Canada.
