Alaska's marijuana control agency has expanded allegations against a Fairbanks marijuana edibles manufacturer, accusing it of selling moldy products among other violations.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports that Frozen Budz's manufacturing license was suspended Dec. 1 after the state Alcohol and Marijuana Control Office accused it of violating testing rules.

But on Tuesday, the state regulators elaborated. In addition to selling moldy products, the manufacturer is accused of using untracked marijuana, making products not approved by the marijuana control board, allowing onsite consumption and selling more than 114,000 untested edibles.

The original investigation stemmed from a tip about a specific product, CannaBanana Bread.

Frozen Budz co-owner Nick Neade said his company never purposely did anything wrong. He said glitches, clunky software and problems regulating the new industry are to blame.
