Hazard identified

The recalled products have record keeping issues with production documents that may not meet the requirements under the Cannabis Regulations. As a result, Bonify has issued a recall as a precautionary measure.

In addition, eight of the recalled lots also have a labelling error where the cannabinoid values are reversed. The THC value should be the THC Total, and THC Total should be the THC value. The CBD value should be CBD Total and CBD Total should be the CBD value. One lot has a "less than" sign present next to the CBD value. See the table above for lot-specific details. 

To date, no complaints have been received related to the recalled lots. Neither Health Canada nor Bonify has received any adverse reports for the recalled cannabis product.
