Truss Limited, an Ontario-based cannabis operator, issued a product recall for three lots of its XMG Cola cannabis drink over concerns that tiny “pinhole leaks” could form in the cans, leading to product leakage and loss of carbonation, Marijuana Business Daily reports. The recall was posted on Health Canada’s website and affects roughly 37,379 units.
The packaging-based recall was issued for cans sold between April 29, 2022, and August 10, 2022. The products were sold for $7.00, and the affected lots are 520413041, 520504051, and 520606051.
Currently, neither Truss nor Health Canada has received consumer complaints related to the drinks or any reported adverse effects, the report says.
The 355-milliliter cans of XMG Cola cannabis drinks had the number one market share in Ontario in the last quarter of 2021, making up 19% of sales. Consumers should contact the store where they purchased the drinks to inquire about the recall.
Health Canada issued a reminder to consumers on its official announcement for the recall that Canadians should report “any health or safety complaints related to the use of this cannabis product or any other cannabis product by filling out the online complaint form,” located here.
Truss Limited is operated as a joint venture between the international brewing company Molson Coors Canada and Hexo Corp., a Canadian cannabis producer, according to the report.
