(COLORADO SPRINGS) — The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and the Department of Revenue (DOR) is issuing a Health and Safety Advisory for a regulated marijuana flower sold at stores in Colorado Springs.
CDPHE said in a press release that the advisory is being issued because of “potentially unsafe levels of Total Yeast and Mold and Aspergillus” of a marijuana flower produced by Green Street LLC.
Through an investigation, the DOR said it has identified Harvest Batches produced by Green Street that initially passed contaminant testing, but subsequently failed retesting. The DOR said batches of the flower were sold to patients or consumers between Nov. 18, 2022 – Feb. 21, 2023.
The DOR said consumers who have this affected marijuana in their possession should destroy it or return it to the regulated marijuana store from which it was purchased for proper disposal. If consumers experience adverse health effects from consuming the marijuana flower, they should seek medical attention immediately and report the health event to the Marijuana Enforcement Division by submitting a MED Reporting Form.
The DOR said all affected marijuana has a label on its container that indicates the license number of the regulated business that cultivated the marijuana as well as the harvest batch number assigned to the marijuana. Consumers should check their containers for license numbers and batch numbers
