Three Major Recalls Affect Residents Across Missouri

Numerous recalls are hitting the market this week.

They include REI, who is recalling 75,000 Co-op Cycles REV Kid’s Bicycles with training wheels, because the training wheel assembly knob can loosen and detach from the bicycle.

Another recall affects all flavors of a micro dosing candy known as Diamond Shruumz after reports of almost two dozen hospitalizations. They include several forms of chocolate bars, infused cones and extreme gummies.

Finally, Solata Foods is recalling its “Fresh Spinach” bags sold in area grocery stores due to Listeria contamination. Brands the Spinach is sold under include Solata, Gaia Organic, Full Circle Organic, Farmer Direct, Uncle Vinny’s and Bogopa.

You can return the items to their place of purchase for a full refund.

Shrummz Recall:

The FDA and CDC, in collaboration with America’s Poison Centers and state and local partners, are investigating a series of illnesses associated with eating Diamond Shruumz-brand Chocolate Bars, Cones, and Gummies.

On June 27, 2024, Prophet Premium Blends, LLC of Santa Ana, CA, initiated a recall of all flavors of Diamond Shruumz-brand Chocolate Bars, Cones, and Gummies. According to the firm, these products contain muscimol, a chemical found in some mushrooms, that could be a potential cause of symptoms consistent with some symptoms observed in individuals who became ill after consuming Diamond Shruumz-brand products. FDA is evaluating this information.

As previously reported, FDA and state partners have collected multiple samples of Diamond Shruumz-brand products for testing and analysis. Additional sample analysis is ongoing, but as of June 25, 2024 test results for two individual chocolate bars collected from a retail store have identified the presence of the following:

  • Diamond Shruumz Dark Chocolate Bar
    • 4-acetoxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine (4-acetoxy-DMT, also known as O-acetylpsilocin or psilacetin)
    • desmethoxyyangonin
    • dihydrokavain
    • kavain
  • Diamond Shruumz Birthday Cake Chocolate Bar
    • 4-acetoxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine (4-acetoxy-DMT, also known as O-acetylpsilocin or psilacetin)

There may be variability in test results across products with different formulations as well as potential variability across lots and batches of the same product. Additional testing for the above Diamond Shruumz-brand Chocolate Bars, along with testing for other Diamond Shruumz-brand products, is in progress. FDA and CDC medical officers are interpreting these test results to understand the health risks of ingesting these chemical substances and to determine the appropriate next steps.

This advisory will be updated as additional information becomes available.
