BAY CITY, Mich. (WJRT) - A Bay City marijuana processor is closed temporarily and products have been recalled from several stores after an employee allegedly licked pre-rolled products during production.

The Michigan Marijuana Regulatory Agency agreed to a 14-day suspension of medical and adult use processor licenses at 3843 Euclid LCC in Bay City while an investigation continues. Products have been removed from shelves at 12 marijuana retail outlets around the state, including in Bay City and Lapeer.

State marijuana regulators launched an investigation into 3843 Euclid LLC after hearing reports that an employee may have licked pre-rolled marijuana products while making them.

All pre-rolled products made at the business are on an administrative hold and prohibited from sale or transfer. The business voluntarily stopped processing marijuana on July 31 and won’t resume production until marijuana regulators offer their approval.

The marijuana regulatory agency says anyone with pre-rolled products made at 3843 Euclid LLC should return them to their provisioning center or retail store for proper disposal. Provisioning centers are required to contact clients about concerns with the products.
