Cannabis consumers in Colorado have been again warned not to consume certain cannabis products, after “potentially unsafe levels” of mold were found by the state’s regulator.

The microbial contamination was identified in two separate batches of flower, which were produced by Jolet Ventures LLC (doing business under the name of 710 Labs) and Sissco LLC (under the name Trenchtown).

The first recall of 2023

On January 5, the Colorado Department of Revenue (DOR) and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) issued two health and safety advisory warnings to consumers, asking them to “destroy” or return their cannabis flower products – if they have the harvest batch number MAC10.27.22Rita or 20220927-RAINBOW BELTS-H on their labels – to the relevant retailer.

Any consumers who experience adverse health effects from the products have been advised to seek medical attention immediately and report the event to the Marijuana Enforcement Division by submitting a MED Reporting Form.

According to the DOR and CDPHE, the flower produced by Jolet Ventures contained “levels of contaminants above acceptable limits for Total Yeast and Mold” while the flower produced by Sissco hosted “Microbial levels” above the state’s acceptable limits.
