State regulators in Colorado have issued another health and safety notice after “potentially unsafe levels” of total yeast and mold and Aspergillus were found in a batch of cannabis flower.

In a notice issued on January 27, the Colorado Department of Revenue and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) said that the levels of mold found in a batch of flower produced by Physician Preferred Products LLC were “above the acceptable limits” of the state.

Products made from the contaminated batches were sold in the state between March and September 2022.

Any consumer in possession of such a product has been advised by the Department of Revenue to destroy it or return it to the initial 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 (MED) by submitting a MED Reporting Form.

Further information on how to identify affected products can be found here.

The CDPHE investigation also found that crop batches harvested by Physician Preferred Products between January 2020 and September 2022 were improperly submitted for testing. As a precautionary measure, Physician Preferred Products has since issued a voluntary recall of all affected harvest batches.
