OTTAWA, Dec. 13, 2017 /CNW/ - Further to a recent Health Canada advisory about an unauthorized health product, "SmartBrainFormulations Serotonin Support," Health Canada is expanding its advisory to warn that all products sold by the company may pose serious health risks. These products are considered to be manufactured under unsanitary conditions at a site that is not licensed
The company operates under several names: Robert Lamberton Consulting; Cutting Edge Naturals; and Cutting Edge Nutraceuticals. It sells various products and custom formulations which are promoted for a variety of health issues and were being offered for sale online and by email. This includes products sold under the brand names "SmartBrain Formulations" and "Cutting Edge Naturals" which have not been authorized for sale in Canada.
Health Canada inspectors observed dirty manufacturing surfaces and equipment, and ingredients that were being stored in unsealed containers. Unsanitary manufacturing conditions can lead to issues such as bacterial contamination, which can pose serious health risks, especially for those with a weakened immune system. Health Canada issued the advisory about SmartBrain Formulations Serotonin Support after testing found E. coli contamination, which can cause serious health problems such as severe stomach cramps, profuse watery or bloody diarrhea, vomiting, nausea and headache.
One product, "Neuroactin Plus Pro" (NPN 80063407 held by Robert Lamberton Consulting), is licensed by Health Canada and appears to have also been manufactured at this site. Health Canada has suspended this product licence, which means no person can legally sell this product.
