Michigan Lab Behind $229 Million Cannabis Recall Sues Regulatory Agency

The agency said it noticed “inaccurate and/or unreliable results”

The company at the center of what is considered Michigan’s largest ever marijuana recall filed a lawsuit Monday against the state’s marijuana regulatory agency. The recall issued last week impacts more than 400 sales locations throughout Michigan and represents an estimated $229 million in cannabis products, according to the lawsuit. 

“The MRA has disregarded industry experts, widely accepted scientific practices, caused disruption through its reckless and arbitrary decision-making, and ultimately put the patients and consumers it is charged with protecting at risk,” attorney Kevin Blair said in a statement Tuesday. 

Last week, the Michigan Marijuana Regulatory Agency issued a recall for all marijuana products, besides inhaled cannabis concentrate, assessed by testing facilities Viridis Laboratories and Viridis North between August 10 and November 16. The agency said it noticed “inaccurate and/or unreliable results” of items tested by the facilities and advised those with the “potentially harmful products” to properly dispose of them or retest them.
