Nicotine mouthpacks, a commercial form of chewing tobacco, are not permitted in the country and pose “serious health risks,” Health Canada recalled Monday.
The nicotine pouches that are placed between the gums and the cheek should not be consumed because Health Canada “has not evaluated their safety, effectiveness and quality.”
These products are not authorized, because they can include a quantity of nicotine greater than the levels considered safe and other substances not indicated.
Nicotine pouch is classified as a prescription drug if it releases more than 4 mg of nicotine per dose or as a natural health product if it releases less than 4 mg.
“No one should use nicotine mouth bags, especially anyone who is hypersensitive to nicotine, has never smoked or smokes only occasionally, is under 18, is pregnant or breastfeeding and has recently had heart problems (including a heart attack, angina and arrhythmia) or a stroke, ”Health Canada said in a statement.
