Health Canada Warns Consumers Not To Use Any Natural Health Products From Tedco, Inc.May 30, 2005 | Health Canada
Health Canada is warning consumers not to use any natural health products exported or sold by Tedco, Inc. of Louisiana, due to the risk that they could contain harmful bacteria. These products are not authorized for sale in Canada.
This warning is an update to a previous warning issued on May 12, 2005 that warned Canadians not to use "Miracle II Miracle Neutralizer."
Health Canada's analysis of a sample of this product found that the "Miracle II Miracle Neutralizer" was contaminated with the harmful bacteria, Escherichia coli (E. coli).
