The Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA) has expanded its recall of certain products made by Moon Mix LLC, said Tulsa medical marijuana attorney Stephen Cale.
The Products And Batch Numbers Affected
The OMMA initiated a recall of Moon Mix products with a batch number of 158 on May 15, 2020. The recall has expanded to vape cartridges and possible other products with batch numbers 154 and 19-0001, the OMMA said in a June 21, 2020, notice.
Medical marijuana products from Batches 154 and 19-0001 have failed required testing and may not be safe for consumers, the OMMA said.
What Medical Marijuana Patients and Dispensaries Should Do
OMMA is requesting that Moon Mix, LLC and any dispensaries that have the affected products initiate an immediate recall of them.
Dispensaries should notify patients or caregivers who purchased these medical marijuana products. Patients or caregivers who have affected medical marijuana products should contact the dispensary they purchased the products from for information on its recall procedures.
Which Marijuana Businesses Must Test and What They Must Test For
Rules governing Oklahoma’s medical marijuana program require marijuana growers and processors to test their marijuana or marijuana products before sale or transfer, said Tulsa medical marijuana attorney Stephen Cale. Tests look for:
- Residual solvents
- THC and cannabinoid potency
- Terpenoid potency,
- Heavy metals, and
- Contaminants and filth.
What Happens When There’s A Failed Test
Under current regulations, growers and processors cannot sell or otherwise transfer their marijuana or products if the batch does not pass the test, Tulsa medical marijuana attorney Stephen Cale said. Instead, they must dispose of marijuana or marijuana products.
What Does The OMMA Require Marijuana Businesses To Do With A Recall
OMMA regulations state in the event that marijuana or marijuana product is sold or transferred but fails to meet testing standards, then:
- Any commercial licensee (including a dispensary) that has knowledge of such event must report it to the OMMA.
- The non-compliant marijuana or marijuana product must be immediately recalled.
- Every commercial licensee who is in possession of or has ever had possession of such medical marijuana or medical marijuana products assist in the immediate recall.
