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

In a notice issued on November 23, the Colorado Department of Revenue and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) said that the levels of yeast and mold found in a batch of “Chronic Therapy” flower were “above the acceptable limits” of the state.

The flower was produced Beddor Claude LLC. Following an investigation, the Colorado regulators deemed the flower to be “potentially contaminated.”

Packages of Chronic Therapy flower were sold in Colorado dispensaries between September 23 and October 11, 2022.

The products should be recognizable by the facility license number 402R-00217, which can be found on the products’ labels.

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.

Total yeast and mold tests are used in cannabis testing labs to detect the presence of molds and fungi. If left untreated, these molds begin to produce chemical mycotoxins that can be particularly harmful to people that are immunocompromised.
