Colorado officials issued a health and safety advisory Feb. 28 regarding potential lead contamination in adult-use cannabis products that were sold in the state.
The Colorado Department of Revenue (DOR) and Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) issued the advisory in response to the identification of potentially unsafe levels of lead on pre-rolls produced by JEM Dutch Acres, LLC, doing business as Earls.
The pre-rolls were sold between Nov. 26, 2021, and Jan. 3, 2022, at JEM Dutch Acres’ dispensary in Leadville, Colo.
The affected products will have the following license number, batch number and product name on the label:
- Retail Marijuana Cultivation License: 403R-00509
- Batch ID Number: 4546
- Product Name: Pre-Roll Joints Mix, Alaskan Cherry Chem Snake
The advisory instructs consumers who purchased the affected products to destroy them or return them to the store where they were purchased for proper disposal. Those who experience adverse health affects from consuming the affected products should seek medical attention and report it to Colorado’s Marijuana Enforcement Division (MED) using a MED Reporting Form.
