Michigan regulators suspended the license of a medical cannabis testing facility after determining that the health and safety of patrons or employees were jeopardized.

The Marijuana Regulatory Agency released a complaint alleging bulletin detailing the suspension of Iron Laboratories.

The complaint alleges several violations regarding the company’s facility in Walled Lake, where Michigan-based Iron Laboratories tests for pesticides, microbials and THC content.

The agency said it discovered inaccurate results and/or unreliable testing and reporting practices by the lab.

Though no adverse product reactions have been reported in relation to the lab, regulators advised patients and caregivers to use caution when using products tested by Iron Laboratories.

The agency, however, isn’t recalling any cannabis products at this time.
