A Denver marijuana cultivation business, The Tea Pot LLC, is voluntarily recalling medical marijuana and medical marijuana products due to the presence of unsafe pesticide residues.
Samples of marijuana infused products contained residual levels of Myclobutanil and Spiromesifin, pesticides that the Colorado Department of Agriculture has determined cannot be used legally on marijuana in Colorado.
All Tea Pot LLC marijuana and marijuana products (such as concentrates) are subject to the recall and were distributed throughout Colorado bearing the OPC # of 403-00081 on each label.
Consumers who have these recalled products should dispose of the products or return them to the store from which they were purchased. For more information about returns, The Tea Pot LLC can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com or 720-913-1311.
