Reports: Oklahoma Issues First Medical Marijuana Product Recall

Oklahoma regulators have issued the state's first medical marijuana product recall, saying that a product batch may not be safe for consumers, according to reports.

The Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority or OMMA issued the recall for a batch that contained a mixture of infused mints and vape cartridges. The products, showing Batch Number 158 on the labeling, were reportedly processed by Moon Mix LLC, a medical marijuana processor based in Oklahoma County.

According to reports, the products tested positive for myclobutanil, a fungicide that can create toxic gases such as hydrogen chloride, hydrogen cyanide and nitrogen oxide when heated for smoking with cannabis.

Patients or caregivers who have the affected medical marijuana products and wish to seek refunds have been urged to return the products to the dispensaries they purchased it from.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Oklahoma is in a grace period through July 1, during which time lab testing is not required for products sold by dispensaries. However, growers are required by state law to have all their cannabis harvests tested.

The recall was reportedly initiated after OMMA requested a testing-lab certificate of analysis from Moon Mix for the wholesale raw cannabis that it had purchased to make its mints and vape cartridges.

As the company was unable to provide the certificate, OMMA ordered a new lab test and the product batch failed the pesticide test, reports said.
