State regulators in Colorado have issued another health and safety notice after “potentially unsafe levels” of total yeast and mold was found in a batch of cannabis flower.
The respective products were produced by P2C3, LLC (doing business as Springs Dispo).
In a safety notice published on August 24, the Colorado Department of Revenue and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment said that the levels of mold found in the products were “above the acceptable limits” of the state.
Through an investigation, the Marijuana Enforcement Division (MED) re-submitted some harvest batches of P2C3’s flower for testing. The batches subsequently failed. The batches were sold to patients or consumers between October 10, 2022, and August 20, 2023. A full list of stores that sold the contaminated batches in Colorado can be found here.
The MED also identified several harvest batches of P2C3’s flower that should have been submitted for testing but weren’t.
P2C3, LLC hasn’t issued a similar recall, but the Department of Revenue has advised any consumers who have bought the company’s affected cannabis products to destroy or return them to the store they were purchased from.
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.
