Canadian Hydroxycut Injury Claims: Health Canada Update

by John McKiggan

Hydroxycut Recall

The Hydroxycut recall that I posted about 10 days ago has resulted in an investigation by Health Canada.

Adverse Effects Reported in Canada

To date Health Canada has received 17 reports of adverse reactions related to hydroxycut use. The adverse reactions relate to the cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal, and neurological systems. So far, none of the adverse reactions reported in Canada relate to liver injuries, which were the main cause of the FDA recall.
