EpiPen Shortage For Canada
Attention those of you that may use the above product.
Health Canada is reporting the following;
shortage of EpiPen (0.3 mg) and EpiPen Jr (0.15 mg) auto-injectors, Pfizer Canada has advised Health Canada that supply of EpiPen in the 0.3 mg format is expected to be very limited at pharmacies during the month of August.
Why is there a shortage?
Ongoing delays at Pfizer’s manufacturing facility is reported to be the problem.
If you are concerned and would like to be kept up-to-date on the latest information regarding this situation please visit drugshortagescanada.ca or contact Pfizer Canada directly for up-to-date information about the shortage and estimated re-supply dates
This does not mean that the problem will be solved in the months following. A report from Globe And Mail is saying that this EpiPen shortage may even last into next year!!
This is very concerning everyone involved. It could take months to catch up to the backlog and to do the inspections that are needed.
Tell us what you think? Will you or someone you know be affected by this shortage? What are your thoughts?
Health Canada will ban trans fat next year.
For those of you that are concerned about trans fats in our food, this is good news.
You will not find any artificial trans fat(trans fatty acid) on any dining plates across the country come September 15th, 2018.
Trans fats are used to extend the shelf life of foods like pastries, packaged goods, and other baked products. Companies add trans fat to their products to help them last longer, therefore making more money in the end.
What are the effects of trans fat on our bodies you might ask?
Oils found in trans fats raise levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL). LDl is considered “bad” cholesterol. It also lowers the “good” cholesterol levels in the body.
When this happens our heart health can be affected.
On September 15th, 2018 all foods sold in Canada (including imported as well as local), and restaurant prepared meals will not be permitted to contain trans fat.
What do you think of these changes?
