Summitt Labs is voluntarily recalling a single lot of its KORE ORGANIC Watermelon CBD Oil Tincture. The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services tested a random sample and found the product to contain lead levels at 4.7 parts per million (ppm), which is above the legal limit as defined by the State of Florida. When informed of this, Summitt Labs issued an immediate voluntary recall and started an internal investigation. As part of this investigation Summitt Labs had a sample from the same lot tested at an ISO/IEC accredited lab. Lead results were 0.5 ppm, which is within the legal limits as defined by the State of Florida. However, based on the test from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Summitt Labs initiated, and will complete, a full recall of the lot in question in full cooperation with the FDA and the State of Florida.
Only one lot of one product is involved in the recall:
Lot #730, Batch #K018 of KORE ORGANIC Watermelon CBD Oil Tincture, 30 ml. bottle, 15 mg 450x
