Denver officials announced the recall of 35,000 packages of marijuana infused candies on Tuesday. It’s the largest in a series of recalls due to banned pesticides.
The latest recall involves EdiPure. The city says the company is voluntarily recalling pot gummy bears and hard candy products. Last week, about 8,000 EdiPure packages were recalled from dispensary shelves. This, after they tested positive for pesticides banned from use in marijuana products.
In a message posted on Facebook, EdiPure says they don’t trust Denver’s lab, calling their methods “voodoo math and junk science.”
Still, it’s the largest recall of its kind since Denver regulators began cracking down in September. In all, about 100,000 candies, dried plants and concentrates have been recalled, according to the city:
35,125 packages of candy
133 1g units of concentrates (wax & shatter)
7,770 packages of candy
12,601 packages of candy
2,362 1g units of concentrate
8,327 packages of candy
19,840 packages of candy
4,337g dried product; # of concentrates TBD
716 vape pens; 10 lbs trim; 14 lbs flower
73 lbs flower; 983g concentrates
11,718 1g units of concentrates
