Rice Harbut Elliott LLP has filed a proposed class action lawsuit on behalf of persons who purchased and ingested U-Dream® herbal sleep aid products in Canada.
Health Canada is advising Canadians that it has tested several U-Dream and has found that they contain a substance similar to the prescription drug zopiclone, which may pose serious health risks, including drowsiness, dizziness, withdrawal, dependence, memory loss, hallucinations and abnormal sleep behaviours while not fully awake including sleep driving (which can result in serious injuries).
Health Canada has asked Biotrade Canada Ltd. to recall the products and will take further action as needed.
The Health Canada recall can be found here.
Compensation will be sought on behalf of Canadians who developed unwanted side effects after taking U-Dream products. Further, a claim will be pursued against the manufacturer for allegedly misleading advertising in representing to the public that the product is a “herbal mixture” and “all natural”.
If you have purchased or taken any U-Dream products we would be interested in hearing from you. Joining our contact list creates no financial obligation and we will keep all the information that you provide to us confidential.
