Diamond Shruumz Linked to Seizures, Heart Rhythm Problems, Other Illnesses: FDA Warns

The exact cause of the illnesses linked to side effects Diamond Shruumz products has not yet been determined.

Federal safety officials are warning consumers not to eat, sell, or serve any flavor of Diamond Shruumz-Brand Chocolate Bars, Cones, and Gummies, after linking the mushroom based products to reports of severe symptoms and illnesses.

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.

In an investigation notice first posted by the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on June 11, the agency indicates that it is working with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), America’s Poison Centers and state and local partners to investigate the cause of reported Diamond Shruumz illnesses, including seizures, loss of consciousness, confusion, sleepiness, abnormal heart rates, nausea, vomiting and other side effects.

While the illnesses were originally linked to only the chocolate bars, the reports have expanded to include problems linked to Diamond Shruumz cones and gummies as well, with at least 12 incidents reported in eight different states, including Alabama, Arizona, Indiana, Kentucky, Montana, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Souch Carolina. All 12 consumers have received medical attention and 10 have been hospitalized.
