A Denver marijuana-infused manufacturing facility, EPMM Colorado LLC (doing business as EdiPure), is voluntarily recalling marijuana products due to the presence of potentially unsafe pesticide residues in some product samples. The recall affects 35,125 individual units of approximately 23 different gummy and hard candy products.
Recalled products include a variety of infused candy products. Contaminated hash oil was used to produce the EdiPure candies, some of which tested positive for one or more of the following pesticides that the Colorado Department of Agriculture has determined cannot be used legally on marijuana in Colorado: Myclobutanil, Avermectin, Spiromefesin, Etoxazole, and Imidacloprid.
The following EdiPure infused candy products are subject to the recall:
These products were widely distributed to store locations around the state.
Consumers who have these recalled products should dispose of the products or return them to the stores from which they were purchased. For more information about returns, EdiPure can be reached at 720-445-6585.
There have been no reports of illness. The possible health impact of consuming marijuana products with unapproved pesticide residues is unknown. Short- and long-term health impacts may exist depending on the specific product, duration, frequency, level of exposure, and route of ingestion. Consumers with concerns about their personal health should contact their physician with related questions.
The Denver Department of Environmental Health (DEH) oversees the recall process to remove potentially contaminated product from commerce. DEH conducts inspections of marijuana-infused product manufacturers and retail locations in Denver and investigates related complaints.
Consumers with questions or concerns about recalled product or pesticide residues in marijuana products are encouraged to contact the product retailer and/or the DEH Public Health Inspections division at email@example.com or 720-913-1311.
