ABC warns licensees not to sell illegal Mary Jones hemp-infused sodas

SACRAMENTO – The California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) is warning licensees not to sell Mary Jones hemp-infused soda, which have been identified as containing prohibited tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) isolate ingredients.  

Because these illegal products are inaccurately labeled and contain prohibited intoxicating ingredients, they pose a risk to consumers. ABC previously released tips for how licensees can identify illegal problems here.

Industrial hemp products are legal in California but are prohibited under state law from containing THC isolates. In the case of the products in question, the state confirmed through laboratory testing that Mary Jones sodas are mislabeled and violate state law by containing Delta-9 THC isolate.

There are specific regulations regarding the composition, marketing and labeling of hemp products. Violations of the law are misdemeanors and may result in fines, imprisonment, or administrative actions against licensees.

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) recommends anyone experiencing ill effects after consuming these products to consult their health care provider. Anyone finding these products for sale should call the CDPH Complaint Hotline at (800) 495-3232 or submit an electronic report here.

ABC is partnering with CDPH and other departments to identify and remove these products. ABC is also working to educate licensees and consumers about these products.

CDPH issued a notice of violation to the California distributor of Mary Jones beverages earlier this month. The distributor is subject to additional enforcement action, including civil or criminal penalties, as are retailers that continue to sell these products. According to CDPH, at this time, Jones Soda Company, based in Seattle, Washington, has not issued a voluntary recall of these products.

This warning applies to all products listed below regardless of lot numbers and dates provided on packaging and labels.
