US (CO): MMJ recalled from Colorado Springs dispensary

Cannabis sold at a medical dispensary in Colorado Springs has been recalled by state regulatory agencies for potentially unsafe mold levels.

According to a May 10 recall from the Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division, cannabis grown and sold by Big Medicine Cannabissary at 2909 North El Paso Street in Colorado Springs failed testing for mold, yeast, and aspergillus, a specific kind of mold banned by the MED.

Commonly found indoors, outdoors, and in cannabis samples, aspergillus can be inhaled through smoke and makes regular appearances in marijuana flower studies. Exposure to aspergillus can cause aspergillosis, a lung, and respiratory infection.
