The Ontario government's cannabis wholesaler and online retailer is returning all products from CannTrust Holdings Inc. — valued at roughly $2.9-million — because they do not conform with the terms of its supply deal with the beleaguered cannabis company.
CannTrust said Monday the Ontario Cannabis Store has determined that some of the products it sold to the crown corporation were "non-conforming" under the terms of its master cannabis supply agreement.
"Any product that does not comply with applicable law is considered to be non-conforming product and the OCS may elect to exercise its right, among others, to return such product to the company at the company's expense," CannTrust said in a statement.
CannTrust noted that the Ontario retailer operates independently of Health Canada, which has not ordered a recall on any of the company's products.
The move by the province's crown corporation in charge of wholesale distribution and online pot retail is the latest setback for the cannabis producer, which continues to be under investigation by Health Canada.
