Nonconforming Blood Components and Plasma Protein Products

Recall of Blood Components Manufactured by Canadian Blood Services

On occasion, circumstances require that Canadian Blood Services recall blood components or plasma protein products that have been already released and issued to a hospital. These circumstances include donors who forget at the time they completed the donor questionnaire that they visited a vacation area where malaria is known to occur , or donors who develop a viral illness post donation and subsequently contact us. Canadian Blood Services holds a blood establishment license and is required to follow Health Canada regulations regarding recalls.
