Denver environmental and health officials have issued a warning to the public concerning a health risk concerning Rx Green’s Autopilot capsules, a marijuana-infused product.
The advisory is due to concerns regarding the manufacturing process and lack of temperature controls in place to prevent bacterial growth. There have been no reports of illness at this time. This advisory has been issued as a result of a food safety inspection.
Consumers who have purchased Rx Green’s Autopilots Omega 3 & THC capsules should dispose of any product manufactured prior to September 17, 2015. Containers of this product list a License # of 404R-00109 on the package.
Denver environmental health specialist, Rachel Burmeister said when a plant-oil-derived product made to be eaten is not refrigerated or manufactured using certain procedures, the agency becomes concerned that the bacteria that causes botulism might form.
The manufacturer, Rx Green, located in Aspen, Colo., has not issued a recall. Consumers with questions about distribution outside of Denver should contact the manufacturer.
