TORONTO – A company in Toronto has ordered the withdrawal of a cannabis product sold in Alberta because of concerns about contamination.
Newstrike Brands and its Up Cannabis subsidiary say withdrawal is a precautionary measure because tests have found mold and microbial contaminants that go beyond acceptable limits.
Recovery involves 1,428 units of a cannabis container of up to seven grams of Cannabis dried, sold to the Alberta Gaming Alcohol and Cannabis Commission.
Newstrike states that the affected cannabis has a date on 28 November 2018 and was only sold in Alberta.
It is said that until now there have been no complaints or adverse reactions to the pot.
People can return it where it was sold for replacement or for a refund.
