About the recall process

The cannabis recall process plays an important role in ensuring defective or potentially unsafe products are removed from the commercial market.

Mandatory recalls

  • Occurs when there is an immediate and serious threat to human life or health, and other remedies would cause an unreasonable delay.
  • Initiated and ordered by DCC.
  • DCC notifies licensees that a mandatory recall is being ordered.
  • Licensee(s) are required to immediately cease distribution and recall the cannabis or cannabis product from the commercial supply chain.
  • DCC posts the recall information to the list of mandatory recalls on its website and sends a consumer advisory to provide information to licensees and consumers about the recall.
  • DCC works with licensees to ensure the recalled cannabis and cannabis products are properly handled, remediated, and/or disposed of.

Voluntary recalls

  • Occurs when the licensee identifies that their product is mislabeled, defective, or unsafe for consumption (adulterated or misbranded).
  • Initiated and implemented by the licensee.
  • The licensee notifies DCC that they are initiating a recall.
  • DCC posts the recall information to the list of voluntary recalls on its website and sends a consumer advisory to provide information to licensees and consumers about the recall.
  • DCC works with licensees to ensure the recalled cannabis and cannabis products are properly handled, remediated, and/or disposed of.
