OLCC Issues Recall Order for Contaminated Cannabis Extracts
OLCC issues recall on cannabis extracts in Oregon due to pesticide contamination from Bobled and Quantum Alchemy.

The Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) has issued a mandatory recall for cannabis extracts that may contain pesticides. According to an OLCC press release, the products were produced under the names Bobsled and Quantum Alchemy by OLCC-licensed companies, and the contamination was due to these companies failing to comply with OLCC and Oregon Health Authority (OHA) regulations regarding tracking and isolating pesticide-positive cannabis products.

This recall affects 13,600 products sold directly to consumers and 9,300 products still on pharmacy shelves. The recalled products, which include concentrates ranging from canned THC extracts to vape cartridges and Rick Simpson oil, were identified in a recent announcement.

The regulatory agency issued a recall in order to ensure that pharmacies do not sell - and consumers do not consume - the affected products, as OLCC investigators could not determine whether the potential contamination was isolated or widespread throughout the product line.

The OLCC has notified marijuana retailers about the recall and provided instructions on how to dispose of the affected products or return them to licensed suppliers for proper disposal. The regulatory agency plans to follow up with licensed individuals who possess the recalled products to ensure they are removed from the market, isolated from other inventory, and ultimately destroyed in accordance with OLCC rules.

Officials have instructed consumers who possess affected products to return or dispose of them at pharmacies. Consumers with complaints related to other products associated with the recall can contact OLCC at olcc.recalls@oregon.gov.

According to a statement released by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC), an investigation into recalled products has been launched on November 29th. Bobsled and Quantum Alchemy are currently working with regulatory authorities.
