Officers in Ontario, Canada, have issued a warning after learning that shipments containing sodium nitrite, a potentially fatal drug, have been sold through the internet and mailed to more than a dozen locations in Ontario as well as other possible destinations.
In meat that has been processed, sodium nitrite, a white, crystalline chemical, is frequently employed as a food additive.
The chemical is thought to have been supplied to persons in Ontario by a 57-year-old Mississauga man who has been detained by police. He is accused of offering suicide advice or assistance. The names of companies like Imtime Cuisine, AmbuCA, Academic/ACademic, and EscapeMode/escModeICemac are included on the labels of the products.
Everyone who obtains an envelope featuring sodium nitrite or has reason to believe it might contain the substance is urged to call the police right away. The drug has not yet been reported as having been shipped to the region, according to Guelph police.
People have been advised by the police to exercise caution and notify the authorities of any suspicious parcels. The inquiry is still underway.
