Kirke LLC/Metro Denver Telluride Health Center LLC Voluntarily Recalls Medical Marijuana Due to Pesticide Residues

A Denver marijuana cultivation business Kirke LLC/Metro Denver Telluride Health Center LLC, doing business as The Hemp Center Colorado Springs and The Hemp Center, is voluntarily recalling all medical marijuana due to the presence of potentially unsafe pesticide residues. 

Samples of marijuana tested during a Denver Department of Environmental Health (DEH) investigation contained residual levels of Avermectin, Bifenazate, Imidacloprid and Myclobutanil, pesticides that the Colorado Department of Agriculture has determined cannot be used legally on marijuana in Colorado.

Medical marijuana plant materials subject to this recall were sold at The Hemp Center Colorado Springs located at 2501 West Colorado Avenue, Suite 106 in Colorado Springs, and The Hemp Center located at 2430 West Main Street in Littleton. All medical marijuana bearing labels with OPC codes of 403-00892 or 403-00899 are subject to this recall. Kirke LLC/Metro Denver Telluride Health Center LLC’s grow facility is located in Denver.
