PARENTS have been warned to be on the look-out for a Dutch brand of biscuit that contains cannabis.
The Spanish Agency for Food Safety and Nutrition sent out the warning after health authorities in the Canary Islands realised the packaging of the products did not say which type of cereal was used in their manufacture.
On analysis they found the biscuits contained an unauthorised ingredient – a derivative of cannabis sativa.
The biscuits involved are Girl Scout Cookies Chocolate Kush and Girl Scout Cookies Ginger Kush, both from the Greenlove brand. Health authorities claim the biscuits are aimed at children, although the brand is widely advertised online as containing cannabis.
The extent of distribution of the biscuits across Spain is unknown, leading the agency to put out a warning to regional governments through the National Food Alert Network and the Community Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed system.
Consumers are asked to turn any of these biscuits they may have bought over to the health authorities.
