Lansing, Michigan-Michigan licensing officials recalled nearly 3,200 “contaminated” pre-rolled cannabis cigarettes from the Bay City processing center on Thursday, August 6.
The Michigan State Regulatory Agency stated that the recall was issued because of a claim that a worker “licked the pre-roll cannabis product while making the roll”. It is not clear how state licensing officials learned of these allegations.
The owner of the processing center identified as 3843 Euclid LLC in the national licensing records also operates the retail and medical store Dispo located at 3843 Euclid Ave. in Bay City. Processing permission has been suspended for 1
The recall affects pre-rolled cigarettes from medical and leisure retailers in Bay City, Hazel Park, Detroit, Traverse City, Ann Arbor, Lansing, River Rouge, Ferndale, Quincy, Lowell, Negaunee, commonly referred to as “blunt pens or joints” “And Lapeer.
In this recall, various brands have been named, and a complete list of product names and tracking numbers, as well as the sales dates and stores of these products, are available at the end of this story. Sales of the recalled products will be conducted between June and August 3.
The marijuana regulator said in a statement: “Consumers who have these contaminated pre-rolls should return them to the buying center or retailer for proper disposal.” “The supply center must notify the purchase of the recall. Pre-rolled patients and nursing staff.
“Consumers who develop symptoms after using these products should report their symptoms and product usage to their doctors. Consumers are required to email: MRA-Enforcement@michigan.gov or by phone: 517-284-8599 (Cannabis Control Bureau) Report any adverse product reactions.”
State licensing officials said the ongoing investigation began on July 31. The processor agreed to stop all operations on the same day until the “marijuana regulatory agency” issued further instructions.
The state has identified potentially affected cannabis products and placed them in an “administrative hold” in the state tracking system, which will alert sellers when they are sold. After the investigation was initiated, the recalled product was sold several times. It’s not clear whether the seller ignored the “hold” alert. When a product is on administrative hold, the state may impose a fine on the retailer or pharmacy that sells the product.
David Harns, a spokesperson for the cannabis regulator, said that because this situation is under ongoing investigation, he cannot say whether this happened. Harns said that once all relevant product and sales information has been collected, a recall notice will be issued as soon as possible.
