Unauthorized Smoking Cessation Product Resolve May Pose Health Risk

From Health Canada:
Health Canada is advising Canadians not to use the unauthorized smoking cessation product Resolve, because of the potential health risk to consumers.

The product contains an unacceptable amount of an ingredient labelled as "CESTEMENOL-350." Consuming excessive amounts of this ingredient might result in damage to the kidney, liver or red blood cells.

Resolve is advertised as a natural stop smoking aid and is available in Cool Peppermint and Wild Cherry flavours. Resolve is distributed by The Winning Combination Inc. These products have been sold in retail stores across the country and are also available over the Internet.

Resolve is not authorized for sale in Canada and Health Canada has asked the company to recall the products. To date, the company has not complied with Health Canada's request. Health Canada will take further action to remove the product from the market. ...more
