The identification of potentially unsafe levels of microbial contamination in retail and medical marijuana produced in Colorado has prompted a warning Friday for cannabis consumers in the state.

Due to a technical error resulting from a software update, several packages of finished marijuana displayed an incorrect testing status in the inventory tracking system. The technical error was found to have occurred between Oct. 21 and Nov. 14, according to the Colorado Department of Revenue and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.

None of the marijuana appears to have originated from the Pueblo area.

'It is now corrected and all impacted licensees have been notified," according to a statement from the departments.

The groups say the marijuana was "found to have levels of total yeast and mold above the acceptable limits."

Consumers who have these affected products in their possession should return them to the store where they were purchased, so they can be destroyed.

Consumers who experience adverse health effects or an illness from consuming the product should see a doctor immediately and report the event to the store from which they purchased the product, the departments advise. All affected marijuana has a label affixed to the container that indicates the license number of the marijuana business that cultivated the marijuana, as well as the harvest number assigned to the marijuana.

The departments urge consumers to check the label of their retail or medical marijuana for the following product information:
