Diamond Shruumz Recall Issued Following FDA Warning on Health Risks

Nearly 40 illnesses have been linked to recalled Shruumz mushroom products, which may cause cause seizures, abnormal heart rates, nausea and vomiting.

Following a warning issued last month by federal health officials about dozens of reports involving severe illnesses linked to Diamond Shruumz, the manufacturer has announced a recall that impacts all flavors of the chocolate bars, cones and gummies, which may contain dangerous amounts of muscimol, a chemical that can cause severe symptoms and injuries.

Diamond Shruumz are a mushroom micro dosing brand, which are marketed as dietary supplement that provides users a “sumptious experience and a more creative state of mind.” However, the products reportedly have no psilocybin in them, meaning the chocolates contain no actual psychedelics or scheduled drugs.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced the Diamond Shruumz recall on June 28, after discovering that the products’ Certificates of Analysis (COAs) showed higher than normal amounts of muscimol, a compound found in Amanita mushrooms, which might be responsible for symptoms similar to those experienced by individuals who fell ill after consuming Diamond Shruumz products.
