A recall was issued by the Michigan state Marijuana Regulatory Agency (MRA) for several products tested by a facility that was liquidated two weeks ago. The products include syringes of the marijuana concentrate Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) Monster X; Glue Buds, a strain of marijuana flower; Savage Signature OG Budder marijuana concentrate, and the Diamond OG Platinum Vape cartridge.
These products were tested at a Wall Lake Marijuana Testing facility that was shut down by the state couple of weeks ago when it failed to meet the established safety standards. The recall was issued due to the existence of
- Bifenazate chemical residue in the RSO
- Cadmium, heavy metal in the Glue Buds
- Heavy metal Arsenic in the Savage Signature
- Heavy metal Chromium found in the Platinum
The MRA howbeit has apprised that various health issues could result from the use of these products, including coughing, wheezing, decreased pulmonary function, nausea, vomiting, abnormal heart rhythm, and damage to blood vessels. Anyone who has purchased these products is strongly recommended to destroy them or return them to the place they were purchased, however, no unpropitious reactions to these products have been reported yet.
The MRA stated that the products were available at dispensaries in Battle Creek, Bay City, Burton, Chesaning, Detroit, Ferndale, Flint, Inkster, Jackson, Kalamazoo, River Rouge, Rogers City, Vassar, Wayne, and Ypsilanti.
MRA Executive Director Andrew Brisbo said that the testing of medical Cannabis derived products is taken very earnestly and the primary focus is on making sure the Marijuana products in the regulated industry meet the entrenched safety standards and measures.
“We take the testing of medical marijuana product very seriously; our first focus is on making sure that the marijuana product in the regulated industry meets established safety standards.” Says Brisbo.
