The prayers of parents with sick children are being answered.
Health Canada says a large foreign supply of acetaminophen (Tylenol) and ibuprofen (Advil) will start restocking store shelves in days.
”We’ve now received and approved three proposals to import foreign product and supply has started to enter the country,” says Dr. Supriya Sharma, Health Canada’s senior medical advisor.
”After next week, more than one million bottles of product will have entered Canada to supply hospitals, community pharmacies and retailers, and medications will start appearing on store shelves early next week.”
The newly secured foreign products might not be brands Canadians are familiar with.
”If you see product that might be a little bit unfamiliar to you, a little bit different, there will be information including tear sheets, QR codes, and identifiers for the product that’s foreign product,” Sharma explains.
