Arizona marijuana manufacturer recalls 'Grim Reefer' product for possible contamination
An Arizona marijuana establishment has voluntarily recalled specific products due to possible contamination with Aspergillus. This is the second recall of marijuana products due to the fungus this year.
The state health department announced a voluntary recall for possible Aspergillus infection in July, for different marijuana products from different manufacturers.
The latest one is for "Grim Reefer" cannabis flower, which lab tests found positive for the fungus. "Flower" is the consumable, trichome-covered part of the female marijuana plant.
The July recall was for potentially contaminated trim, or excess parts of flower that are removed after harvest.
Reactions to Aspergillus range from cold-like symptoms to fevers and chest pain. According to ADHS, no illnesses have been reported.
