Products from the popular Colorado edibles brand At Home Baked are being removed from store shelves at the order of the Denver Department of Environmental Health.
The recall was triggered because the company allegedly used a device not tied to food production – a washing machine – to create a concentrate with the end purpose of adding it to marijuana hash.
It is common practice in the marijuana industry to adapt products designed for one purpose into something appropriate for the cultivation, processing or consumption of the product. The process nonetheless ran afoul of Colorado’s strict guidelines for processing cannabis.
There have been no reports of illness tied to the products.
As with many small companies facing recalls, the financial impact on At Home Baked could be significant. Owner A.J. told The Cannabist website that the recall is a serious blow. “It’ll be difficult to keep our head above water,” he said.
