Wing Hing sand ginger powder - Public Health Warning due to may contain poisonous monkshood powder
8 months ago
Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada
Fraser Health announced a public health warning for Wing Hing brand sand ginger powder sold by Wing Hing Trading Co. Ltd., located in the Crystal Mall, Unit 1162 - 4500 Kingsway, Burnaby, B.C., as it may contain poisonous monkshood powder. Fraser Health began an investigation into the sand ginger powder after two people presented to hospital in early February with heart irregularities after consuming the product.
Fraser Health advises people who have this sand ginger powder to not consume it and discard it immediately. The health department seized the remaining product from the store and continues to work with other agencies to ensure it is further removed from the marketplace. Wing Hing brand sand ginger powder was sold in 70 gram packages. There is no identifying lot information on the packaging. You can see the packaging on the pictures below.
Monkshood is the common name for a plant called Aconitum. Roots of the plant, which look very similar to ginger root, contain the toxin aconitine that can cause nausea, vomiting, dizziness, weakness, irregular ventricular contractions, and in severe cases, death.
In case you are experiencing food poisoning symptoms, it is important to report it. It can help to detect & resolve outbreaks early and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance.

Picked up a container of Caesar vinaigrette from the deli/refrigerated section Aug 6.. Didn’t check the dates on it before purchase, but when I got home noticed it was packed July 12, expiring Aug 10. Seems like a long window for fresh dressing with dairy and anchovies..?... Anyways, made a salad.
Felt nauseous in the morning, took a couple pepto’s and had some kombucha. Took another dose of pepto in the afternoon, couldn’t eat or drink anything. Bad abdominal pain, got home and was basically living in the bathroom for the whole night. Took two more pepto in the evening, didn’t help at all. Fever of 101 all night. Feeling better today, but still pretty nauseous and very dehydrated. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Fever, Other, Dehydration

Last night I attended the Suns game with my neighbor. We ordered a foot-long hotdog and some chicken strips with ranch dressing. At approximately 5 AM I began having cramps, diarrhea, and cold sweats. At approximately 9 AM. My neighbor messaged me to ask how I was... feeling and he believed he got food poisoning from the food at the stadium. I let him know I was poisoned as well. Today is day two with intermittent sleep due to cramping up. Drinking lots of water but have not eaten anything since the food at the stadium. I now have blood in my stool and have requested medical help. My neighbor is still cramping up and not feeling well. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Cramps, Sweating, Bloody Stool
This first happened to me in August and I happened to have my only bout with COVID at that time. I assumed the stomach issues were from COVID. I recovered from the virus but kept eating Lucky Charms and kept having the stomach issues. Did I have... "long COVID?". It took me a while to put the cereal and the stomach issues together. I stopped eating the Lucky Charms and I have not had the issues since. I am very happy to know that this has come to an end. As a side note, I was eating the cereal dry in a cup, so there was no dairy issue or other ingredient to confuse this revelation. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Stomach Pain
