a recall had been issued for Mr. Right brand Keampferia Galanga Powder

Absolutely everything on the packaging of this product should've warned you of a negative outcome.

Does everything come in bags in Canada? Do they know jars exist up there?

Mr. Right can't spell Kaempferia right. It is not spelled Keampferia.
Though if a product is being recalled it should be recalled under its misspelled name.

> The aconitine toxin comes from the roots of the poisonous Monkshood plant, which is also known as Wolfsbane or Keampfeira.

No, Kaempferia is in the ginger family and not closely related to Wolfsbane.

Also, there's a chance the restaurant owner grew their own and didn't know about the different varieties and how to process it.

At least nobody is dead.  Doesn't take a whole lot of that stuff to die, and not in a fun way.
