Complaints of mould has prompted RedeCan to recall one of its products.

Last week, the Ontario Cannabis Store said it was aware of some of its products having mould following “a few complaints.” According to the OCS, complaints were made regarding mouldy products from licensed producers, and while it didn’t list the producer, RedeCan soon followed with a statement of their own confirming that the reports of the mould are limited to a single lot of a particular strain called “BEC” and packaged in 3.5 gram containers.

While it initially didn’t recall the product, a statement from the producer confirms a voluntary recall of the lot.

“We ask that consumers not consume the product described below as we investigate the source of the complaints,” it stated. “Being a family run, privately owned company we have the best interest of our consumers at heart, and we have decided to conduct a Type II voluntary recall of BEC 4B2L3. Safety and satisfaction is a top priority of RedeCan.”

The producer said that mouldy pot shouldn’t be consumed. If consumed and the customer becomes ill, they recommend seeing a doctor.

If you are in possession of BEC Lot 4B2L3, please return through the Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS),” state RedeCan. “Affected customers will receive an email from OCS with next steps for returning products subject to the recall.”

Over the past week, five complaints were received that a product contained mould. The five complaints were all related to the same lot, of which the producer said it shipped 13,344 units.

This cannabis product was grown, produced and packaged at their facilities in Pelham, Ontario.
