(This story has been updated to include information from the previously unpublished Health Canada recall notice.)
A voluntary recall has been issued for some of Canopy Growth’s whole flower cannabis brand “LBS Sunset” sold throughout Canada between Feb. 7 and Feb. 27.
The recall, which all provinces and territories in Canada have been made aware of, involves incorrect labeling.
According to the company, the incorrect labels list:
- THC levels less than 0.07%, when it should be 0.40%.
- CBD levels of 0.40% when it should be less than 0.07%.
- Total CBD level of less than 0.07% when it should read 0.08%.
“All these numbers round down to zero,” a company spokesperson told Marijuana Business Daily. “We are very sorry for the inconvenience, and we want to assure consumers that the dried flower itself is the 23% THC level it was labeled as.”
This is the eighth product recall since Canada legalized cannabis in October 2018 – and Canopy’s first in that time. No recall notices were posted in the nine months prior.
The other seven recalls were a result of labeling errors, mold or recordkeeping issues with production documents.
Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Commission (AGLC) – the regulator of adult-use cannabis in the province – is asking retailers to remove the recalled products from store shelves, mark it “Do Not Sell – Recalled Product” and set it aside until further instructions are issued by the agency.
According to the AGLC, the lot and SKU number are SUN8213TSB and CNB006003620, respectively.
