CANADA: A B.C.-based medical marijuana producer is recalling a batch of pot after finding that it was contaminated with mould.
Whistler Medical Marijuana Corp. says it detected the mould in Lot 0004 of its White Widow strain of marijuana after two customers complained about its appearance. Anyone who received that batch of White Widow — which is also referred to as White Shark and Peace-Maker on the company’s website — should stop using it, the company said.
Health Canada, which licences marijuana producers under its Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations, says the company will send out appropriate packaging and a postage paid shipping container to anyone wishing to return the tainted product.
Health Canada says most mould does not present a significant health risk, but can cause infections in those whose immune systems have been weakened by serious illnesses.
