The Government of Canada has published an official notice in response to the circulation of misinformation on social media regarding a recall of Rapid Antigen Tests. There has been no recall of any of the Rapid Antigen Tests (RATs) circulated in Canada. FNIHB has confirmed that the Rapid Antigen Tests that FNIHB supplies are safe for use and have not been recalled.

Health Canada is advising Canadians about potential risks associated with the misuse or accidental ingestion or spillage of COVID-19 rapid antigen test kit solutions on the skin. Health Canada has determined that the kits are safe and effective when used as intended.

What to do when performing a Home Test:

  • Keep rapid antigen test kits and solutions out of the reach of children and pets.
  • Do not swallow the solutions, and avoid eye and skin contact.
  • Wash hands thoroughly after use.
  • If spillage occurs, rinse well with water.
  • Follow all instructions for proper disposal.
  • Report any health product-related side effects or complaints to Health Canada.
  • Contact your local Poison Information Centre in cases of accidental ingestion or direct skin exposure to test kit solutions.
