At least 58 people have reported illnesses, including respiratory failure, after consuming Diamond Shruumz brand microdosing edibles.

In the past week, ten more patients have been reported. At least 30 patients have required hospitalization, and one has died. The sick people are spread across at least 24 states.

Chocolate bars, gummies, and cones are among the implicated micro-dosing edibles. The Food and Drug Administration has found that they contain dangerous chemicals found in mushrooms.

Patients have reported a variety of symptoms, including respiratory failure, seizures, central nervous system depression (loss of consciousness, confusion, sleepiness), agitation, abnormal heart rates, hyper/hypotension, nausea, and vomiting.

Prophet Premium Blends have recalled all flavors of the edibles. For a complete list of product images and the recalled items, click here.

Consumers are urged to check their homes for the recalled products and throw them away if they have them on hand.

Anyone experiencing adverse reactions after consuming any of the recalled products is urged to seek medical attention immediately, especially if they are having trouble breathing.
