On March 18, 2017, the Oregon Liquor Control Commission announced that it had issued a recall on nine pounds of marijuana flower produced by Emerald Wave Estate and sold by Buds 4 U in Mapleton due to the presence of unsafe levels of pesticide residue.

The nine-pound batch of marijuana failed a test for pyrethrins, an active ingredient in some insecticide products used by marijuana cultivators, which wasn’t entered into the OLCC Cannabis Tracking System until it had already been transferred to Buds 4 U.

Once recorded in the CTS, Buds 4 U saw the failed test results and issued a voluntary recall. By that point, 31 customers had purchased a total of 82.5 grams of the affected marijuana, sold under the product name Blue Magoo.

The affected marijuana has the following package numbers: 1A4010300005B05000000772, 1A4010300005B05000000769 and 1A4010300005911000000005.

If you purchased the recalled marijuana, you can return it to Buds 4 U.
