A Denver marijuana cultivation business GMC LLC, doing business as Green Man Cannabis, is voluntarily recalling marijuana and marijuana products due to the presence of potentially unsafe pesticide residues.
Samples of marijuana and marijuana infused products contained residual levels of off-label pesticides that the Colorado Department of Agriculture has determined cannot be used legally on marijuana in Colorado.
Marijuana plant material and products subject to the recall were sold at Green Man Cannabis stores located at 1355 Santa Fe Dr. and 7289 E. Hampden Ave. in Denver. The marijuana and marijuana products bears a label that lists an OPC License # of 403-00738, 403-00361, or 403R-00201. All plant material and derived products originating from these cultivation facilities are subject to the recall.
Consumers who have these recalled products should dispose of the products them or return them to the store from which they were purchased. For more information about the recall, Green Man Cannabis 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.
