OKLAHOMA ISSUES DRAFT EDIBLE SAFETY RULES

The Oklahoma Food Safety Board issued draft food safety rules for processors that produce edible marijuana products.  The regulations require processors to follow existing Oklahoma food safety laws and regulations.   In addition to existing regulations, there are additional requirements around labeling and packaging as well as recommended testing procedures. Oklahoma recommends that processors establish written minimal thresholds for the presence of biological, physical and chemical contaminants.  Like Michigan, Oklahoma rules provide that edibles should be tested for E. coli, Samonella, yeast, molds, chemical residue, metals and pesticide residue, and potency.   Labels and packaging must indicate the list of ingredients including the list of marijuana ingredients including the batch of marijuana.
