Understanding the Recall Landscape

As the cannabis industry experiences a surge in product recalls—often due to contaminants, inaccurate labeling, and lab errors—well-known brands are feeling pressure to reassure customers that they are taking product safety seriously. Compared to the food and pharmaceutical industries, cannabis recalls are relatively new and increasing rapidly. For instance, as of July 3 California’s Department of Cannabis Control (DCC) has issued 28 product recalls in 2024—compared to 3 recalls in all of 2023 and 3 in 2022. This highlights the need for stringent quality control measures. By comparison, food industry recalls have been steady, while the pharmaceutical sector sees frequent but well-managed recalls.
