6ABC Action News reported Friday that the D.A.’s office found fentanyl and heroin in THC and CBD products sold at three Tobacco Hut locations: 1740 Dekalb Pike, Whitpain Township, 728 Bethlehem Pike, Montgomeryville, and 1080 Bethlehem Pike, Hatfield.
Two non-lethal overdoses have been reported. Employees at the Whitpain location told Action News they had no idea they were selling products with illegal drugs.
In a statement, the company said:
“Tobacco Hut was unknowingly the recipient of inventory that contained illegal ingredients contrary to representations from the product supplier. We have removed these brands from all Tobacco Hut locations. For each of our 22 years in business, the company has prided itself in providing only the highest quality products to its customers and has maintained a zero-tolerance policy for products that are misrepresented. We continue to work with law enforcement to ensure they have everything necessary to resolve this matter.”
Anyone who purchased these items in Montgomery County, and still has them in their possession, is warned not to eat them.
Instead, you are asked to contact the Montgomery County Detective Bureau at 610-278-3368 or call their local police department to turn them over for testing.
