Following reported illnesses, the Iowa government has issued a warning on the consumption of Diamond Shruumz products.

Iowa has become the latest state to report illnesses linked to Diamond Shruumz-brand products. The affected individuals, some of whom are in critical condition, purchased the products from a retail store in eastern Iowa. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has already issued a warning about these products earlier this month and has begun an official investigation.

The FDA has warned consumers not to eat, sell, or serve any flavor of Diamond Shruumz-brand Chocolate Bars, Cones, or Gummies. Their advice extends to discarding these products if found at home, emphasizing the products’ appeal to children and teenagers and the need for parents and caregivers to discuss the advisory with them. Retailers have been advised not to sell or distribute these products, and to secure them until further instructions on their return or safe disposal can be provided.

For consumers who become ill after consuming these products, the FDA suggests contacting a healthcare provider or calling the Poison Help line at 1-800-222-1222. Healthcare providers should report these illnesses to their local health department and/or the Poison Help line. The products linked to the illnesses reported in Iowa include cookies, cream chocolate bars, and fruit cereal-flavored bars.

Iowa Health and Human Services (HHS) officials have recommended that individuals do not purchase or consume these products and advise disposing of them if they are in possession. As these products are classified as dietary supplements, they are not regulated by the State of Iowa and cannot be recalled by the state. They are commonly available for purchase at consumable hemp retailers as well as tobacco and vape shops.

Both Iowa HHS and the FDA are investigating this issue. The FDA is also in discussions with the firm about a possible voluntary recall. Any Iowan experiencing severe symptoms is advised to visit the emergency room.
