Another Medical Marijuana Recall Ordered In Canada

marijuana recall canada tilrayAnother medical marijuana recall has been ordered in Canada. The recall was ordered after medical marijuana company Tilray detected bacteria in samples from three harvests. This is the third medical marijuana recall that I have heard of in Canada. The first one ever issued was in April of last year when Greenleaf Medicinals of British Columbia had to issue a recall due to problems with their production practices. The other one I have posted about involved Peace Naturals Project Inc. issuing a recall for selling medical marijuana that was ‘too potent.’ Below is recall information for the most recent recall by Tilray:

Tilray is voluntarily recalling three marijuana for medical purposes products due to positive bacterial testing: Sativa House Blend (Lot number: 5411 9952 8740 9514), Hybrid House Blend (Lot number: 6889 8271 1515 4149) and Indica House Blend (Lot number: 3470 2895 9118 1906).

During the course of a regular inspection conducted under the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations, Health Canada inspectors tested the above products to ensure compliance with the regulation.

Tilray’s clients should consult with a healthcare professional if they have concerns about their health related to the use of this product.

Tilray is contacting the clients who received the affected lots and is instructing them to immediately discontinue use of any marijuana from these lots that they may still have in their possession. If clients wish to destroy the product at home, they should add water to the marijuana to render it unusable, mix it with cat litter and dispose of it with regular household waste. Clients with questions regarding return of product should contact Tilray directly.

The company has indicated that it has not received any reports of adverse events associated with the use of this product. Further, Health Canada has not received any reports of adverse reactions.

Producers of marijuana for medical purposes are subject to compliance and enforcement measures similar to those in place for other producers of controlled substances. They must meet strict security, control and reporting requirements, and they are regularly inspected.

Dried marijuana is not an approved drug or medicine in Canada. Possession and use of marijuana remains illegal in Canada unless authorized under the regulations with the support of a doctor or nurse practitioner.

    I have never seen the problems the Tilray group seems to be experiencing… maybe they should have better quality control and management??

    Interesting but what evil bacteria was contaminating this that puts a smoker at risk? What sinister threat did Health Canada find that warrants the trashing of all this expensive production? I could understand smallpox or syphilis but then again it could be something as simple as impetigo or e.coli from a worker handling the product after a good scratch of his ass just before the sample was taken.

    Harper has a hair up his ass when it comes to pot and under his orders Health Canada and his Bitch Witch Rona claim there is no medical benefit to Medical Marijuana. I suspect their chief inspector got the giggles when he did the taste test! The bacteria is a product of the cover up of a batch that made the tokers “happy”!

    Happiness for any Canadian citizen is not in Harpo the Hun’s plan for the future of Canada so it had to be dumped. Bacteria are bad so blame it on them. Gets us off the hook!

      Well said as always. Try to convince us that cannabis has no medicinal value makes about as much sense as trying to convince us that the earth is still flat, morons.

      And add water and cat litter to destroy the weed? Sigh. The haters need to smoke some so that they can wake the fuck up and use their brains for something other than a place to store their grey matter. How about take the weed and make it into oil?

    How about some independent testing comrade Harper. No you would just let your country men waste there hard earned money on you and your friends at these grow companies. Enjoy those kick backs while you can Harper
