Sundance Gardens, a Denver marijuana wholesaler, has issued a health recall for 100 lots of marijuana products due to potentially unsafe microbial concentrations.

An Aug. 26 health notice from the state ministries of revenue and public health and the environment lists fourteen harvest batches of Sundance marijuana flowers, shakes, and trim that are believed to have been contaminated with yeast or mold, and another 86 harvest batches of plant products in which this is stated Regulators have identified as potentially contaminated.

According to the DOR, the recalled crops were produced between June 1 and July 17 of that year, and all Sundance Gardens cannabis products recalled have the same company marijuana growing license number on their packaging labels: 403R-00109.

“Consumers who have these affected products in their possession should return them to the retail outlet where they were purchased for proper disposal,” said the health notice. “Consumers who experience adverse health effects from consuming the product should seek medical advice immediately and report the incident to the store where they purchased the product.”

This is the largest single marijuana recall in Colorado since last October, when Bonsai Cultivation – a wholesaler for 144 pharmacies, eleven infusion and extraction facilities, and three other growers at the time – issued a recall regarding mold problems. In the past year, the DOR has carried out at least eight different product recalls, most of which showed elevated microbial concentrations.

Sundance Gardens has not yet responded to our request for comment. See the recalled crop lot numbers for more information. For more information, see the following health notice:
