  • Fraser Health Warns Products Sold At Surrey’s DUTTA HEALTH CENTRE AYURVEDIC CLINIC 'Could Pose Serious Health Risks'

Fraser Health is alerting clients of Dutta Health Centre Ayurvedic Clinic in Surrey (the “Dutta Clinic”) to discard any ayurvedic products they purchased from the Dutta Clinic as some have been tested and found to contain higher than acceptable levels of heavy metals (including lead and mercury) or are not licensed as natural health products by Health Canada.

If you have bought or consumed products from the Dutta Clinic and have concerns about your health, please see a physician and inform them of any products you have used. The BC Drug and Poison Information Centre is available to work with your physician on any diagnosis or treatment. You may also report any health product adverse events or complaints to Health Canada.
