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)
  • 3950 Holly St., Denver, CO  80207 (402-00603/402R-00073)
  • 1126 S. Sheridan Blvd., Denver, CO  80232 (402-00970/402R-00360)

  • 745 E. 6th Ave., Denver, CO  80203 (402R-00479)
