EdiPure Recalls Additional Marijuana Products Due to Pesticide Residues

A Denver marijuana-infused manufacturing facility, EPMM Colorado LLC (dba EdiPure), is recalling medical marijuana products due to the presence of potentially unsafe pesticide residues in some product samples.  The recall affects 92 units (i.e. bottles) of 7 different products.

Recalled products include a variety of infused candy products.  Contaminated hash oil was used to produce a variety of 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 and Etoxazole.

The following EdiPure medical infused candy products are subject to the recall and all list a batch number ending in 1386: Cherry Bombs (250 and 500 mg), Peach Tarts (250 and 500 mg), Mixed Drops (500 mg), Watermelon Tarts (500 mg), and Sour Bears (250 mg).

These products were 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) is investigating this issue and overseeing 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 phicomments@denvergov.org or 720-913-1311.
