LARA Issues Another Marijuana Recall In Michigan, Seventh Of 2019

February 06, 2019 - 5:16 pm

VASSAR, Mich. (WWJ) -- The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs has issued yet another recall on a number of marijuana products.

This recall -- the seventh issued by the state since the start of the new year -- involves nine products sold at the Elite Wellness medical marijuana dispensary in the city of Vassar, east of Saginaw.

Officials with LARA say laboratory tests found chemical residue on several different products, including marijuana plants, concentrate and edibles.

The products include:

  • Agent Orange (Flower)
  • AK Extracts Crumble  (Concentrate)
  • Detroit Growers Extracts (Edible)
  • Blue Cheese  (Flower)
  • Super Lemon OG (Flower) 
  • Orange Skittles (Flower) 
  • Lemon Drop (Flower) 
  • Ice Cream Cake (Flower) 
  • Grand Daddy Purp (Flower)

LARA says the recalled products were sold between Nov. 13, 2018 and Feb. 1, 2019.

Patients and caregivers who have these affected products are asked to return them for proper disposal.

All affected medical marijuana has a label affixed to the container that indicates the license number of the marijuana facility that obtained the marijuana product, as well as the production batch number assigned to the marijuana product. That information on the recalled products can be found on the LARA website.

Several other dispensaries have seen recalls in recent months, including one in Ypsilanti and one in Detroit.

Earlier this week LARA updated marijuana guidelines for active ingredients, safety tests, and remediation protocols in an attempt to "keep medical marijuana products safe for Michigan's patients, while allowing businesses to run efficiently."
