Health Canada's inability to recall unsafe drugs widely criticized
from Toronto Star
Health Canada says it is "committed to ensuring the quick recall of unsafe drugs" but cannot reveal how or when this will happen. A recent Toronto Star front page story highlighted a long-standing but little-known flaw in the Food and Drugs Act. While the federal drug regulator approves all prescription medications sold across Canada, the department confirmed it is powerless to recall these drugs when data suggest they do more harm than good.
