Colorado is taking measures to ensure the safety of marijuana consumers. The state’s Department of Public Health and the Environment has announced a partial recall of edibles that have been created by one manufacturer over concerns that non-approved pesticides were used in the marijuana grow farms. The target of the recall is Colorado Wellness Centers LLC, which operates as Lush.

The products include a variety of flower, trim, infused products and concentrates that have been distributed by Lush. The department’s announcement indicates that the products being recalled are Alegria 10/5 F1 ISS 6061 OG 6353, Alegria 6216 ISS 6062 OG 6354, Alegria 6221 ISS 6064 Ringo 11/8 F1, BC 10/12 F2 ISS 6065 SD 6357, BC 10/18 F2 ISS 6066 SD 6358, BC 6286 ISS 6071 SD 6359, BC 6287 LA 10/24 F2 SD 6360, BC F1 10/22 LA 6300 SD 6361, BD 10/20 F2 LA 6301 SD 6362, BD 10/21 F2 LA 6303 SD 6363, BH 10/19 F2 LA 6304 SD 6364, BH 6329 LA 6305 WC 5797, BH 6330 LA 6306 WC 6244, BH 6331 LA 6307 WC 6245, BH 6332 LA F2 10/24 WC 6246, BH 6333 OG 6052 WC 6247, BH 6334 OG 6227 WC 6248, BH F2 10/26 OG 6346 WTH 10/18 F1, CVK 10/15 F2 OG 6347 WTH 10/22 F1, Fab 10/18 F1 OG 6348 WTH 10/5 F1, Fab 10/19 F1 OG 6349 Xmas 10/31 F1, Fab 5509 OG 6351 Xmas F1 10/24 and ISS 10/18 F2 OG 6352.

The state conducted tests on a variety of marijuana products, which showed signs of containing Pyriproxyfen, a pesticide that does not appear on the state’s approved pesticides list. The pesticide is considered to be low in toxicity for humans, but some researchers have linked it to microcephaly, a birth defect that leads to abnormally smaller heads in babies when they’re born.
