Arizona recalls ‘Diamond Shruumz’ products amid ongoing FDA investigation

The Arizona Department of Health Services has recalled “Diamond Shruumz” mushroom-infused candy.

On Wednesday, ADHS warned consumers about risks associated with the brand’s chocolates, cones and gummies following reports of people experiencing severe adverse effects including seizures and loss of consciousness after ingesting the products.

ADHS also notified retailers to stop selling and distributing the products until further notice. 

The FDA is investigating the brand’s products, which are intended for microdosing and are sold online and in retail stores including smoke and vaping shops.

In Arizona, six cases have been reported to the two poison centers so far, with additional cases reported in other states.

“The patients have required emergency transport, emergency department evaluation, and in some instances, intensive care admission,” a news release from the ADHS said.

ADHS reminded consumers that products labeled as “microdosing” are not approved by the FDA and that unlisted ingredients might have unknown health risks.

They advised consumers who feel ill after consuming Diamond Shruumz  products are advised to contact their healthcare provider or to call a poison control helpline. The Arizona Poison and Drug Information Center can be reached at 1-800-222-1222. Patients can report their case to the FDA by filling out an online form.
