RICHMOND, B.C. –Health Canada is warning that it seized a number of unauthorized health products from a business in Richmond, B.C.

The agency says it has seized 10 products from EPCA Shipping Inc., which it says is the Canadian distributor for Extreme Peptides, a company that sells health products online.

Health Canada says in a news release that the seized products are labelled to contain various prescription drugs that could pose a serious health risk.
