Mountain Medicines Recalls Medical Marijuana Infused-Products due to Pesticide Residues

A Denver marijuana manufacturing business, Claudette Homegrown LLC, doing business as Mountain Medicines, is voluntarily recalling some medical marijuana-infused edible products.

Approximately 980 units of medical infused edible products are subject to the recall because they were made with potentially contaminated marijuana from Good Meds, a Denver marijuana cultivation facility that was also subject to a recall earlier this month. The Mountain Medicines products in this recall do not bear required labeling information identifying the cultivation facility (OPC number) to allow consumers to identify the affected product. 

Samples of marijuana and marijuana concentrates evaluated in the course of a Denver Department of Environmental Health (DEH) investigation at Good Meds contained residual levels of off-label pesticides that the Colorado Department of Agriculture has determined cannot be used legally on marijuana in Colorado.

The infused edible products subject to the recall were sold at several dispensaries throughout Colorado. All marijuana products listed below are subject to the recall, and corresponding batch information is listed on the product labels:

Consumers who have recalled products should dispose of the products or return them to the store from which they were purchased. For more information about the recall, Mountain Medicines can be reached at info@mtnmeds.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 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 phicomments@denvergov.org or 720-913-1311.
