    Fraudulent Health Products

    (403) 245-0533 / (403) 651-9049

    Health products include drugs, medical devices and natural products.  These are regulated by Health Canada.  As an organization, Health Canada tends to be concerned with the health and safety aspect of the products, and the Department should be followed up with if an adverse reaction, or a safety concern with the product is there.  Health Canada can be reached by clicking this link.

    The Competition Bureau is now getting involved with health fraud, and if the products are clearly fraudulent but don’t have any adverse medical issues, the Competition Bureau should be contacted at this link.

    In the U.S. for the most part, as we understand the situation, the FDA is the place to be contacted for health and safety concerns with products, and the Federal Trade Commission looks after fraudulent promotion, advertising etc.  The FDA can be reached here and here is the link for the FTC.

    Here are some of the recent scams we have reported on with health products:
