DENVER — A dispensary is voluntarily recalling all of its medical marijuana concentrate products because they could contain unsafe pesticide residues.

The City and County of Denver Environmental Health issued the alert about the products made by Buddies Wellness and sold at La Bodega dispensary.

The recall applies to medical marijuana concentrates with the OPC code of 403-00364, sold by La Bodega at 1270 W. Cedar Ave. before Friday.

During a Denver Department of Environmental Health investigation, residual levels of myclobutanil were found in samples of marijuana concentrate products.

Myclobutanil is a pesticide the Colorado Department of Agriculture has determined cannot be used on marijuana in the state.

There are no reports of illness and the possible health impacts are unknown. However, short- and long-term health impacts might exist.

Anyone with products that fall under the recall should dispose or return them to the store.

Anyone who has consumed one of the products and has concerns about health should contact a doctor, the DEH recommends.

La Bodega can also be reached at reactionhomes@gmail.com for more information about the recall.

Anyone with questions about recalled products or pesticide residues in marijuana products can contact the DEH Public Health Inspections division at phicomments@denvergov.org or 720-913-1311.
