The Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS) has issued a recall for two cannabis products this week for incorrect THC values.
Editor’s note: This article was updated on September 25 to include Health Canada’s own recall notice for these products, including a recall notice for one product in Nova Scotia.
A representative with the OCS says the Licensed Producers initiated both of these voluntary recalls as the products were labeled with incorrect THC values.
Update: Health Canada has now issued a recall notice for this product as of September 25. The notice notes that 1152 units of recalled product were sold.
While the first recall was for THC levels incorrectly listed as too high, the second was for the labelled THC levels lower than the COA.
The Lemon Linx Reefers are 0.3 grams each and come in a ten-pack. They were packaged on August 31, 2023. The Lot Number is 3423004P1.
Although the Lemon Linx Reefers prerolls are not currently listed on the OCS website, a cached version of the listing advertiser the product having 205.00 – 270.00 mg/g THC (20.50 – 27.00 percent).
The labels incorrectly listed the THC values as THC 240.1 mg/g and Total THC 349.0 mg/g.
The correct THC Values are THC 22.9 mg/g and Total THC 209.3 mg/g.
The Banana Mints from Prime Pot Inc (dba as EastCann) was incorrectly labelled with a lower Total THC value in comparison to Total THC value on the Certificate of Analysis.
The OCS currently lists the product as having from 30 percent to 38.5 percent THC.
Update: Health Canada has now issued a recall for this product as of September 25. The recall is for lot number DB2023-1 with a packaging date of August 30, 2023, and another under the same lot number that was packaged on September 7. Health Canada’s recall includes products in Ontario and Nova Scotia.
The printed value on the label for the Banana Mints packaged on August 30 was Total THC: 304.01 mg/g and should have been Total THC: 362.96 mg/g. The label on the product packaged on September 7 was Total THC: 295.57 mg/g while it should have been Total THC: 362.96 mg/g. 886 units of recalled product were sold.
