LANSING, Mich.-The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are urging Michigan residents not to eat, sell or serve any flavor of Diamond Shruumz-brand Microdosing Chocolate Bars, Infused Cones or Micro Dose and Macro Dose gummies, and instead throw them away. The products are labeled as containing a proprietary blend of mushrooms such as reishi and lion’s mane.

“People in multiple states have become ill after eating these products, reporting a variety of severe symptoms,” said Dr. Natasha Bagdasarian, chief medical executive. “As these products look similar to candy, we urge parents and caregivers to consider discussing this information with their teens even though they are intended for individuals 18 and older. We are advising that everyone avoid these products.”

As of Friday, June 7, the FDA and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (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 products.
