Regulators in Michigan have recalled a series of vape cartridges from the medical and adult-use markets due to the presence of a banned chemical residue.

Analytical Cannabis reached out to the state's Cannabis Regulatory Agency (CRA) and was informed that the identified residues included bifenthrin, myclobutanil, bifenazate, paclobutrazol, permethrins.

In a notice published on July 21, the CRA said the recalled cartridges – manufactured under the name “Flight Live Resin Disposable” – include three batches that were produced by the company Sky Labs.

Sky Labs was fined $100,000 last month by the CRA for failing compliance testing and potentially using illicit market products.

Anyone with the newly recalled products – which are branded Grease Monkey, Space Ether, and Bubblegum – in their possession has been advised to return them to their location-of-purchase for proper disposal.

Any retailer that sold one of the products must display the CRA’s recall notice on the sales floor, visible to all customers, until August 21.

All affected retailers are listed in the CRA’s notice.

The CRA says any consumers who have experienced adverse reactions to the Sky Labs products should report their symptoms to their healthcare providers and the CRA (CRA-Enforcement@michigan.gov).
