Oregon Recalls First Cannabis Flower
Buds 4 U in Mapleton, Oregon issued it's first recall on one of the strains of cannabis sold at its establishment. The Oregon Liquor Control Commission recalled Blue Magoo after spotting the failed pesticide reading in the state’s cannabis tracking system.
An employee of the Commission stated that a distributor shipped out the flowers before the test results were entered in the tracking system. The National Pesticide Information Center based at Oregon State University claims the samples failed a test for pyrethrin levels, a mixture of six chemicals that are toxic to insects.
GreenHaus Analytical Labs conducted the test. 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 federal government still considers marijuana illegal, leaving states to establish their own rules for pesticides and cannabis. Oregon currently tests for 59 active ingredients.
