Several medical cannabis products are coming off the shelves in Ohio after state regulators issued the first mandatory recall.
Patients there have been alerted to stop using a line of products made by One Orijin, a marijuana processor that only just began serving the state last month.
On Friday, the Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program (MMCP) issued the first recall for a product called “Pineapple Express Rosin.” By Sunday, the agency expanded the recall to include a pair of other products from One Orijin: “Blue Boi Z7” and “Afghani #1.”
The Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program said there have been no reports of adverse reactions to the products, but that the recall was initiated “due to product development using a non-compliant process.”
“Patients who have purchased the recalled product should stop using it,” the MMCP said in its advisory. “All unused product should be returned to the dispensary where purchased.”
In addition, the MMCP said that any returned products will not count toward the patient’s 90-day limit.
Microbials Not Processed Correctly
According to local news reports, the plants used in the recalled products “contained unspecified types of microbials,” which can be used in products but only if they are processed in a specific way.
