InHe Manufacturing, LLC and MHR Brands have issued a voluntary nationwide recall for multiple brand names of Hemp and CBD oil tinctures due to the presence of excess lead.
The Florida Department of Health advised the Company of the presence of elevated heavy metals (lead) in some of its products. The company determined that the issue related to graduated droppers provided by a third-party packaging supplier.
Exposure to lead could present physical signs and symptoms including, pain, paresthesia/muscle weakness, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, poor appetite, weight loss, symptoms associated with encephalitis, metallic taste in the mouth, shock, hemolysis or kidney damage.
Prior to notifying customers of this recall, MHR Brands had not received any reports of adverse health effects regarding the recalled products. Consumers should observe pets and contact their veterinarian as signs and symptoms of lead exposure in pets may be similar to those in humans.
