US (CO): State issues advisory for potentially unsafe MMJ batch at dispensaries

The state is issuing a health and safety advisory for a cannabis batch sold at several dispensaries in Colorado, including in Colorado Springs and the Pueblo area.

According to the alert, high levels of yeast and mold were found on medical cannabis flower produced by Long Gone Farms during standard testing required by the state. Colorado is among several states that require total yeast and mold testing to evaluate the safety of a particular batch.

“The [state health department] and DOR deem it a threat to public health and safety when cannabis is found to have total yeast and mold or aspergillus levels above the acceptable limits established in Colorado Marijuana Rule 4-115,” the Colorado Department of Revenue (DOR) Marijuana Enforcement Division said in the advisory Monday.

Additionally, the state says it has identified additional cannabis batches that were produced at the same time as the aforementioned contaminated batches and never submitted for testing. According to the Department of Revenue, all of the batches of concern were sold by medical cannabis stores between June 1 of last year and March 9 of this year.
