Last month, two dispensaries voluntarily recalled possibly contaminated products. In September two dispensaries had to recall marijuana products for the same reason and one shop fired an employee for using unapproved pesticides.

Additional Information from the Denver’s Department of Environmental Health:

Consumers who have these recalled products should dispose of the products or return them to the stores from which they were purchased. For more information about returns, Gaia’s Garden can be reached at GaiasRecall@gmail.com.

There have been no reports of illness.

The Denver Department of Environmental Health (DEH) is partnering with state agencies to investigate this issue and oversee 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.
