The recalled products were dispersed to marijuana sales locations throughout Michigan, including at Shango Lapeer, 224 E. Genesee.
Shango Lapeer is one of six retail locations licensed by the City of Lapeer and the State of Michigan to sell both medical and adult-use (recreational) marijuana to persons 21 and older.
The affected 10,000 packages of marijuana-infused chocolate edibles called, Covert Cups, were recalled because the products didn’t go through proper inspection after being processed. Rather than being inserted in clear packaging, they were placed in colored packages.
