Since the Canadian government legalized adult-use cannabis in late 2018, cannabis product recalls have been issued 42 times.

Some of those recalls have addressed serious product defects, like potential contamination or leaky packaging.

However, most cannabis product recalls involved a far more mundane issue: 29 of them – or 69% – have involved labeling problems, according to Health Canada’s recall database.

Four-and-a-half years after Canadian adult-use sales started, the persistence of cannabis recalls for incorrect labeling raises a question for the regulated industry: Why does this keep happening?

Recalls, even for minor issues, can damage the reputations of cannabis companies and the regulated industry as a whole.
