Denver-based Lab710 recalls pot products over pesticides

Updated Nov. 18 at 9:21 a.m. The following corrected information has been added to this article: Because of a reporter’s error, the name of the company subject to the recall was misreported. It is Lab710 Concentrates.

More than 2,300 packages of marijuana concentrates are being voluntarily recalled from Colorado pot shops because they contain potentially dangerous pesticides banned for use on cannabis.

The state’s latest marijuana recall, involving 2,362 packages of pot extracts made by Denver-based Lab710 Concentrates, was announced by the Denver Department of Environmental Health on Tuesday.

“This is all about the customer and patient and our quality name,” said Lab710 co-owner Jason Martinez, whose company acquired the tainted trim from TruCannabis, the subject of its own recall in mid-October. “We don’t want it tarnished by something we thought we had a handle on.”

The business is the third company to recall product after purchasing pot from TruCannabis.

Tuesday’s recall announcement marks the eighth pesticide-related recall in Colorado in 10 weeks — a process that began after a Denver Post investigation found high levels of unapproved pesticides in pot extracts made by Mahatma Concentrates in September.

But the recall is Colorado’s first since Gov. John Hickenlooper last week issued an executive order saying the state would now enforce a years-old law that authorizes the quarantine and destruction of pot grown with the banned pesticides.

“While the order doesn’t affect the city’s local authority, it strengthens our ability to protect public health,” Dan Rowland, spokesman for the city’s Office of Marijuana Policy, said Tuesday. “The order reinforces the city’s ability to take action on products with any residues of unapproved pesticides, not just those that are above the lowest food tolerance. We’re still reviewing the details and working with the state to ensure we’re coordinated on our approach to protecting consumers.”
