California has issued a recall for over a dozen marijuana products as a result of toxic mold. What is included in the list?


Owing to possible mold contamination, the California Department of Cannabis Control has issued multiple recalls for cannabis goods.

Aspergillus, a “plant-infecting and toxigenic fungi” that is typically found in cannabis and hemp blossoms, may have contaminated the marijuana products. This information comes from the National Institutes of Health. The federal organization in the United States is in charge of biomedical and public health research.

According to a 2023 report from the health service, “Aspergillus was the most common organism associated with infection of cannabis users.”

The following cannabis products were recalled in California because they contained aspergillus:


According to the California Department of Cannabis Control, there are two kinds of recalls.

The department issues orders for mandatory recalls where there is an immediate and significant risk to public health. Businesses that deal with cannabis products do voluntary recalls when they find that the product is mislabeled, dangerous, or faulty.

Due to possible aspergillus contamination, mandatory recalls of the following cannabis products were required on the designated dates:

  • May 17: LAX Packs Premium Flower
  • May 6: Canndescent California 100% Whole Flower Pre-rolls
  • April 25: C-Creme Infused Pre-roll
  • April 19: 8 Track 1.0 Gram Pre-roll

  • March 1: Grizzly Peak Premium Indoor Flower
  • Feb. 21: Lowell BIG BUDS Blueberry Kush Indica
  • Feb. 21: Roundtrip Pistachio Flower
  • Jan. 10: Gelato Orangeade hybrid


The Department of Cannabis Control advises looking for the matching UID and batch number on your package if you believe you may have bought any of the recalled cannabis products.

The government advised customers to “dispose of the product or return it to the retailer for proper disposal.”

License holders or companies will take authorized action to fix the problem in accordance with prior mandated recalls.


As per the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, most people inhale aspergillus spores on a daily basis without experiencing any health problems.

However, aspergillus exposure increases the risk of health issues for those with compromised immune systems or lung conditions.

The following are a few typical signs of exposure:

  • Headaches
  • Wheezing
  • Weight loss
  • Cough
  • Fever
  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chills
  • Coughing up blood

The Department of Cannabis Control said, “If you are experiencing symptoms or any adverse reactions, contact your physician immediately.”
