Oregon Issues First Cannabis Recall Over Pesticides

SALEM, Ore. — The Oregon Liquor Control Commission issued its first recall of recreational marijuana after samples of a type of cannabiswere found to contain a level of pesticide residue above the state limit.

The rest of grower Emerald Wave Estate’s 9-pound batch of Blue Magoo marijuana flower can’t be sold until additional testing is complete. The Blue Magoo marijuana was sold at Buds 4 U in Mapleton, a community 45 miles west of Eugene, The Capital Press reported. The commission, which oversees retail sales of recreational cannabis, said people who bought the productshould return it to the retailer or throw it out. The retailer notified the agency immediately after spotting the failed pesticide reading in the state’s cannabis tracking system, commission spokesman Mark Pettinger said. The shop sold the brand to 31 customers March 8-10. Pettinger said a wholesaler shipped the cannabisto the Mapleton store before the test results were entered in the tracking system. RELATED...
