Medicinal Wellness Center LLC Voluntarily Recalls Marijuana and Concentrates Due to Pesticide Residues

A Denver marijuana cultivation business, Medicinal Wellness Center LLC, is voluntarily recalling marijuana and marijuana concentrates due to the presence of potentially unsafe pesticide residues.

Samples of marijuana and marijuana concentrates contained residual levels of Myclobutanil, a pesticide that the Colorado Department of Agriculture has determined cannot be used legally on marijuana in Colorado.

The recall affects 5,004 individual units of 23 different medical concentrates, 138 individual units of two different recreational concentrates, and two strains of medical marijuana. The marijuana and marijuana concentrates subject to the recall were sold at Oasis Cannabis Superstore, located at 6359 E. Evans Ave. and 5440 W. 44th Ave. Marijuana concentrates subject to the recall bear the following label information:
