Pre-rolled joints recalled over possible contamination with yeast, mould and bacteria

·1 min read

A recent cannabis recall could harsh some Canadians' buzz.

Atlas Growers Ltd. is voluntarily pulling three product lots of pre-rolled joints that may be contaminated with yeast, mould and bacteria.

The recall applies to two types of Atlas Growers Ltd.'s pre-rolls sold between Dec. 1, 2020 and last Wednesday.

The affected products are Natural History Zour Apples Full Flower Pre-Rolls and Atlas Growers Zour Apples Full Flower Pre-Rolls.

Health Canada says approximately 11,304 of the three-joint packs were sold in in Alberta, the Northwest Territories and Yukon.

The agency says exposure to yeast, mould and bacteria may cause allergic symptoms, but serious health consequences are rare.

The recalled lot numbers are: P200027, P200044 and P210008.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published July 11, 2021.
