Michigan Marijuana Regulatory Recalls Several Cannabis Products


The Michigan Marijuana Regulatory Agency (MRA) has issued a recall due to inaccurate and unreliable test results for many cannabis products in the state.

Retailers are required to withdraw almost all products, with the exception of inhalable cannabis concentrate products, which were tested by compliance facilities Viridis North, LLC and Viridis Laboratories LLC between August 10 and November 16. Inhalable cannabis products include:

  • Vape cart
  • Living resin
  • distillate
  • Any other cannabis concentrate made by solvent extractions

All retail locations that have sold such products must post the MRA recall on the retail floor and ensure that it is visible to all consumers for 30 days from the date of notification.

Licensees who have products in their inventory that meet the criteria have the following options:

  • Destroy the product and send proof of the destruction to MRACompliance@michigan.gov.
  • Have the product retested for the Microbials Compliance Panel.
  • Return the product to the licensee’s original source so that they can destroy the product or have it retested as a larger batch.

If a licensee declines to return or re-test a product, they must “create new METRC packages with new METRC identification numbers before the products are transferred or submitted for testing,” the notice states.

In addition, consumers who have purchased a product that meets the criteria can return it to the point of sale for proper disposal. Consumers who have experienced side effects from consuming such products should report their symptoms to a doctor and the MRA by email: MRAEnforcement@michigan.gov or phone: 517-284-8599, the notice says.

According to the announcement, the MRA is still investigating. For more information and questions, please contact MRA at MRACompliance@michigan.gov.
