As a cannabis business operator, you’ve probably felt like the compliance requirements are already too complex and demanding, but if you think about it from the perspective of a regulator or a consumer, having safe products to consume is absolutely critical to the success of the cannabis industry.
While recalls have been fairly rare and Recall Plans have generally not been required by regulating agencies, this is changing as regulators are getting more savvy and more cannabis products are being found to be contaminated with pesticides and microbial infections. It’s important when a contaminated product is found, that a bullet-proof recall process is in place to ensure that no other products from that batch have the possibility of harming a consumer.
As we move closer to federal legalization, a Complaints and Recall Plan will become necessary for every cannabis business. Getting started with your planned processes now is important for your long-term success.
