A dispensary in Arizona has recalled a batch of THC gummies due to concerns of Salmonella contamination.

The recall was amplified by the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS), which, in a news release published on August 3, advised purchasers of the Grape Cloud 9 Gummies 100mg (batch number C9G04102023) to dispose of them.

The ADHS detected the potential contamination during a routine inspection after reviewing the product’s testing documentation.

The ADHS then reportedly contacted the company that produced the gummies – Nirvana Center is cited as the “cultivator” of the products – a company that then took “immediate action” to work with all distribution and retail partners to remove any potentially impacted products from store shelves.

As of August 3, no illnesses were reported to the ADHS.

“This announcement is being made out of an abundance of caution,” the regulator wrote in its press notice.

“Patients who have purchased potentially contaminated products should not ingest, inhale, or otherwise consume them and should dispose of them. If you have already consumed any of the products and have any of the symptoms described below, please contact your healthcare provider or seek care in the event of an emergency.”

Salmonella bacteria, if ingested, can cause an infection characterized by diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps.

The Cloud 9 Gummies recall follows another Salmonella-related summons by the ADHS in June. Back then, three cannabis concentrate products and one brand of flower were voluntarily recalled due to concerns over Salmonella and Aspergillus contamination. All were produced from cannabis cultivated by the company Cannabist.
