UPDATE – Consumer Alert: Edible Marijuana Products Manufactured by Frozen Budz Are Under Review

Alaska Suspends Frozen Budz Edible Marijuana Products

ANCHORAGE, Alaska, Dec. 12, 2017 /Weed Wire/ – The Marijuana Control Board is reviewing accusations against Frozen Budz marijuana product manufacturing facility (license #10012). The board is considering whether or not to revoke the marijuana establishment license, which was suspended on December 1, 2017.

Allegations include

  • Selling over 114,000 untested edible marijuana products
  • Selling edibles that are significantly over the THC limit
  • Selling edibles that are contaminated with mold
  • Producing and selling edibles from marijuana that was not tracked as required by law
  • Making edible marijuana products not approved by the Marijuana Control Board
  • Allowing onsite consumption

“Product testing and tracking are vital to both consumer confidence and public safety,” said Erika McConnell, director of Alcohol and Marijuana Control Office (AMCO). “AMCO is committed to investigating threats to public safety, health, and welfare to provide Marijuana Control Board members with the information they need to evaluate accusations and take appropriate actions.”

AMCO had three packages of CannaBanana Bread, an edible marijuana product manufactured by Frozen Buds, tested. In addition to testing positive for mold, the THC level per serving was on average between two to three times the legal limit.

Products manufactured by Frozen Budz were available at many marijuana retail stores, particularly those in southcentral and central Alaska. Retail establishments have been instructed to cease selling the Frozen Budz edibles that are under review.

The mission of the Alcohol and Marijuana Control Office is to enforce alcohol and marijuana commerce laws and provide clear, consistent standards for licensure to protect the public from harm.
