Product labels will specify if it has been authorized for sale by Health Canada with an eight-digit Drug Identification Number, Natural Product Number or Homeopathic Drug Number.

Shoppers can also find out whether products have been authorized for sale by searching Health Canada’s Drug Product Database and Licensed Natural Health Product Database.

This is not the first time the west Edmonton store has had products seized. According to the online list, the store had similar products seized in April 2021 as well.
