ODHA Website > Post > Recall notice – Yunnan Baiyao Toothpaste

Health Canada is advising Canadians that LinkGlobal Food Inc. in Richmond Hill, Ontario, is recalling unauthorized ‘Yunnan Baiyao Toothpaste’ because it is labelled to contain a prescription drug (tranexamic acid) and may pose serious health risks. The product is being promoted for the prevention of bleeding gums. It is packaged and labelled in Chinese characters, so not all consumers may understand information about the ingredients, usage, dosage and side effects. Prescription drugs should be taken only under the advice and supervision of a health-care professional because they are used to treat specific diseases and may cause serious side effects. Read the full news article here.
