Michigan Regulator Recalls Cannabis Trimmed With Contaminated Machine
Authorities in Michigan have issued a voluntary recall notice for several batches of cannabis products that were run through a mechanical trimmer machine, which is now known to have been contaminated with pesticide residues.
According to the notice from Michigan’s Marijuana Regulatory Agency (MRA) issued on September 24, the trimmer was contaminated with the insecticides bifenthrin and chlorfenapyr.
The affected marijuana material ended up in several products, including bud, pre-packaged bud, and pre-roll joints.
These products were sold under the following brand names and in the following locations:
- Mint Cannabis (Kalamazoo).
- Authentic 231 (Manistee).
- Fluresh (Grand Rapids).
- The Woods Cheboygan (Cheboygan).
Any consumers with these products in their possession have been advised to return them to their initial retailer for proper disposal. These retailers have also been asked by the MRA to display the recall notice for 30 days.
Any consumers who have experienced any adverse symptoms after using these products should report them to their physician and to the MRA via email (MRA-Enforcement@michigan.gov).
Back in July of this year, the MRA issued a mandatory recall for 10,000 cannabis-infused edibles after it was found that the products went through unauthorized testing.
