The OPP says the packages are labelled as coming from Imtime Cuisine, AmbuCA, Academic /ACademic, Escape Mode/escMode or ICemac.
Peel Regional Police laid two counts of counselling or aiding suicide against an Ontario man suspected of marketing and distributing sodium nitrite.
The OPP asks that anyone that receives an unexpected package from one of these businesses to call police.
