Enforcement: Canadian authorities suspend Web pharmacy’s licence of one of the most important online pharmacy

June 19, 2014 - www.theglobeandmail.com

Ottawa has temporarily pulled the licence of one of Canada’s largest Internet pharmacies after an inspection turned up “significant concerns” with the company’s wholesale operations, but the decision has no bearing on the company’s ability to sell hundreds of different drugs directly to patients over the Web. During a routine inspection, the regulator found injectable drugs that were frozen when they should not have been. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has already kept a close eye on Canada’s Internet pharmacies. In September, 2012, the FDA sent a warning letter to Canadadrugs.com asking it to stop selling “unapproved” and “misbranded” drugs to customers in the U.S. under hundreds of Internet domains with names such as cheapmedscan.com, medsforamerica.com and PayLessMeds.com.
