Ohio’s Medical Marijuana Control Program has issued a recall for plant material produced by Galenas LLC, the Columbus Dispatch reports.

The recall is for Blueberry Cookies flower and Blueberry Cookies shake, or trim, and it was prompted by complaints from dispensaries who said they found plastic-like material in some of the company’s packaging.

There have been no reports of harm caused by the affected product, however, the products should be returned to their point of sale, state regulators say. Returned products will not count toward a patient’s 90 day supply quota, according to the report.
