Cannabis Recall In Colorado

After careful review dispensary and cultivation owners were forced to recall 31 batches of cannabis including five different stains due to pesticides.

The Cannabist reports:

State marijuana regulators on Monday recalled 31 batches covering five strains of medical marijuana grown and sold by Bailey dispensary Sunrise Solutions, the latest in a string of product health advisories over pesticide concerns.

Officials say marijuana grown by  Sunrise Solutions is impacted, including flower, trim, concentrates and infused products, and consumers should return them to the place of purchase to ensure they are properly disposed.

The recall — the state calls it a health advisory — comes after regulators say tests confirm the presence of pesticides that are not approved for use on marijuana.

The owners of the dispensary and cultivation could not be immediately reached.

It is unclear how large the recall is or how many products and plants are affected. Product labels will contain the business’s license number, 403-00856 or 402-00576.

The list of strains can be found on the  state’s website.

The company’s website did not offer any information about the recall or that one has been declared.

It is the state’s sixth recall since its first on Feb. 17 and comes after Gov. John Hickenlooper in November declared that any marijuana grown with unapproved pesticides is a public health risk and should be destroyed.
