DENVER — A large chain of marijuana dispensaries in the Denver area is voluntarily recalling medical and retail marijuana products over contamination concerns.
Pre-rolled joints recently purchased from Lightshade Dispensaries were found to contain potentially unsafe levels of yeast and mold, according to a release from the Denver Department of Public Health and Environment.
The agency said it opened an investigation after receiving a complaint of illness potentially associated with the pre-rolled joints.
Inhaling high levels of mold could lead to short and long-term health issues, the release warns.
All medical and retail marijuana pre-rolls sold from the following Lightshade Labs locations prior to February 16, are subject to the recall.
- 330 S. Drayton St., Denver, CO 80247 (402-00405/402R-00106)
