MISSISSAUGA, Ont. - Health Canada has suspended the licence of a chemical testing laboratory saying it found falsified results in tests involving medications and food additives.

The agency is asking companies that had testing done by Chemi Pharmaceutical to halt sales of affected products until safety can be confirmed.

So far, Health Canada believes only a portion of Chemi Pharmaceutical's work involved final testing of products before they were released on the Canadian market.

Chemi Pharmaceutical is based in Mississauga, Ont.

There is no evidence that the health of Canadians has been impacted.

A list of products that require further testing is available at Health Canada's website.
