The Colorado Department of Revenue (DOR), in conjunction with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), issued a health and safety advisory due to the identification of potentially unsafe levels of yeast and mold contamination on pre-rolled marijuana produced by Dune Valley Farms.

Through an investigation, the DOR has identified pre-rolled marijuana that was untested, and in certain cases, were confirmed to contain levels of contaminants above the acceptable limits for yeast and mold.

The contaminated product was sold to consumers from the harvest batches listed here. Consumers who have these affected pre-rolls in their possession should destroy them or return them to the retail marijuana store from which they were purchased for proper disposal. Consumers who experience adverse health effects from consuming the products should seek medical attention immediately and report the event to the Marijuana Enforcement Division by submitting a MED Reporting Form.

All affected marijuana has a label affixed to the container that, at a minimum, indicates the license number of the regulated marijuana business that cultivated the marijuana and the harvest batch number assigned to the marijuana.
