On January 4, 2019, CannTrust Inc. initiated a voluntary Type III recall for one lot of cannabis oil sold in 40 mL (37.6 g) bottles, due to a labelling error. The label displayed “1:1 Capsules” instead of “1:1 Drops”. The product, lot number and packaging date are correct on all bottles. However, some bottles might have the wrong SKU, variant name, and potency content due to this labelling error.

A Type III recall refers to a situation in which the use of, or exposure to, a product is not likely to cause any adverse health consequences.
