Colorado marijuana cultivator issues statewide recall over high mold and yeast levels

Three local dispensaries were listed in the recall

A 2019 state law allows communities to authorize marijuana delivery services. Vail is unlikely to allow those businesses.

A Denver-based marijuana cultivator is voluntarily recalling retail marijuana products because of elevated yeast and mold counts.

Bonsai Cultivation, licensed under the LLC Redwood Investment Partners, is making the recall after a Denver Department of Public Health & Environment investigation of dried marijuana samples, including flower, shake, trim and pre-rolls, found potentially unsafe levels of yeast and mold, according to a DDPHE news release.

All retail marijuana plant material or retail marijuana products bearing the OPC barcode 403R-00228 — sold widely throughout Colorado — are subject to recall, the release said.

Eleven manufacturing facilities, three cultivation facilities and 144 retail stores throughout Colorado received plant material subject to recall prior to Thursday, according to health officials.

Consumers or businesses who have recalled products should dispose of them or return products to where they were purchased.

Three Vail-area dispensaries were listed in the recall: RockyRoad Vail, High Country Healing and Tumbleweed in Edwards. See the full list from The Denver Post.
