Gaia’s Garden Recalls Additional Marijuana Products Due to Pesticide Residues

A Denver marijuana-infused manufacturing facility, Gaia’s Garden, is voluntarily recalling marijuana products due to the presence of potentially unsafe pesticide residues in some product samples.  The recall affects 12,601 units of 30 different products.

Recalled products include a variety of infused candy products. Contaminated hash oil was used to produce a variety of Gaia’s Garden 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, Imidacloprid, and Etoxazole.

The following Gaia’s Garden infused candy products are subject to the recall:

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 partnering with state agencies to investigate this issue and oversee 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.
