A Denver marijuana cultivation business, Big Toe LLC doing business as Fine Trees, is voluntarily recalling all marijuana and marijuana products due to the presence of unsafe pesticide residues.
Samples of marijuana and marijuana infused products contained residual levels of Spiromesifin, a pesticide that the Colorado Department of Agriculture has determined cannot be used legally on marijuana in Colorado.
All marijuana and products created using Big Toe marijuana (such as edibles and concentrates, under a variety of brand names) are subject to the recall and were widely distributed throughout Colorado bearing the OPC #s of 403-00290 and 403R-00304 on each label.
Consumers who have products bearing either of the two OPC codes should dispose of them or return them to the store from which they were purchased. For more information about returns, Big Toe LLC can be reached at email@example.com.
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 exposure. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 720-913-1311.
