As previously reported in early January,  UP Cannabis Inc. began a voluntarily recall for a batch of its Eldo dried cannabis in the 7g format.  UP Cannabis Inc., in its press release on the matter January 4th, confirmed the details of the recall and the lots affected.

Since our previous story from January 5th, Health Canada has now also posted a general public recall for the cannabis and confirmed that “To date, no complaints have been received related to the recalled lot and Health Canada has not received any adverse reaction reports for the recalled product.”.

Health Canada has noted in the recall that for some individuals, consuming cannabis that contains mould could set off allergy symptoms such as sneezing, watery eyes, runny nose or congestion, etc. but often does not trigger severe reactions.

The affected product was sold between November 29th and January 4th.  The product has been identified as lot number 1204201 and bears the UPC code of 828939111631.

This is one of several recalls for cannabis since legalization in October 2018 but the first time UP Cannabis Inc. product has been affected.  Previous recalls involved Redecan based in Ontario and Bonify located in Manitoba.

For customers who may have purchased the product outlined in the recall, you are encouraged to contact the Alberta Cannabis call centre at 1-855-436-5677, via AlbertaCannabis.org or return it to the licensed retailer you purchased it from for a full refund.  If you’re looking for more information you can also reach out to UP Cannabis Inc. directly via 1-833-UPDOTCA(873-6822) or by email at care@up.ca.
