“PHOENIX (June 3, 2024) – Arizona’s poison control centers are warning consumers of serious health risks related to “Diamond Shruumz” products after an outbreak of cases seen in Arizona and other states over the last week. These products have caused seizures, unconsciousness, and other adverse effects requiring hospitalization.

Diamond Shruumz sell products like chocolate bars and gummies infused with mushrooms intended for microdosing and can be purchased online and in stores in Arizona.

“While these products claim to contain only natural ingredients and no scheduled drugs, there is clearly something toxic occurring,” said Steve Dudley, PharmD, DABAT, Director of the Arizona Poison and Drug Information Center. “We’ve seen the same phenomenon of people eating the chocolate bar then seizing, losing consciousness, and having to be intubated. So far, we’re aware of similar cases in Nebraska, Utah, and Indiana, and we’re working with the FDA to hopefully prevent anyone else from becoming ill.”

“We are urging the public to use extreme caution due to the very serious effects of these products,” said Maureen Roland, RN, Director of the Banner Poison and Drug Information Center in Phoenix.

The poison control centers are also encouraging healthcare professionals to call and report any cases they treat in the hospital. This will help with the coordinated efforts between the poison centers and local, state, and federal health agencies to determine the extent of the issue.”

Stay vigilant and inform yourself, your family, and your friends about the dangers of psychedelic candy and other dissociative drugs. Always read the labels on these products, as some include warnings about potential side effects.
