Shawn Buckley’s Comment on Vega’s Response to Health Canada’s Recall Request Nov 5/13

VEGAVega is not recalling two of their products despite Health Canada deeming them a “potentially serious risk” to Canadians. Here’s what Shawn Buckley has to say about their stand:

“I have read Health Canada’s advisory on the Vega products and have watched Vega’s Public Response to Health Canada’s Advisory. Assuming that the information Vega has put in their public response is true (and I have no reason to doubt its veracity) I have to say that I respect Vega for being reasonable. On many occasions I have had to give legal advice to companies facing recall demands by Health Canada. I have learned through experience to never assume that there is an actual health risk. The first thing I have the company do is independent testing which leads to an independent risk analysis. If the product is therapeutic in that there could be a health risk to removing the product, then I usually get medical advice on the risk of removing the product so that a balanced risk analysis can be done. For example, when last year Health Canada was demanding all suppliers of Nattokinase to recall, an independent risk analysis concluded that a recall could lead to harm.
