2 Southern Colorado medical marijuana dispensaries named in warning of unsafe levels of Total Yeast, Mold, Aspergillus

DENVER, Colo. (KRDO) — The state issued a Health and Safety Advisory due to the identification of potentially unsafe levels of Total Yeast and Mold and Aspergillus found on some Medical Marijuana flowers (bud/shake/trim) in Colorado. Of the medical marijuana stores where contaminated or potentially contaminated marijuana was sold, two are in Southern Colorado.

According to the Colorado Department of Revenue (DOR), this flower is produced by Long Farms LLC, doing business as Steel City Meds Medical Dispensary.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and the DOR deem this a “threat to public health and safety when marijuana is found to have Total Yeast and Mold or Aspergillus levels above the acceptable limits established in Colorado Marijuana Rule 4-115.”

The DOR also identified potentially contaminated Harvest Batches of Medical Marijuana, produced during the same date range as the confirmed contaminated batches, that were not submitted for testing in accordance with Colorado Marijuana Rule series 4-100.

According to officials, these contaminated and potentially contaminated Harvest Batches were sold by Medical Marijuana Stores between June 1, 2022, and March 9, 2023.

The DOR said patients who have these affected products should destroy them or return them to the store from which they were purchased for proper disposal.

Anyone who’s experienced adverse health effects should seek medical attention immediately and report it to the Marijuana Enforcement Division by submitting the MED Reporting Form.

The DOR said all affected marijuana has a label that indicates the license number of the Regulated Marijuana Business that cultivated to the marijuana and the Harvest Batch number assigned to the marijuana.
