The Oregon Liquor and Cannabis Commission (OLCC) has issued a recall for two cannabis vape products due to pesticide contamination.
The products are:
La Mota – Jack Herer vape cartridge | Manufacture Date: 6/3/2021 (Label ID 6466) | Tested Date: 5/17/2022 | Sold starting 11/11/2022
Her – Girl’s Night Out vape cartridge | Manufacture Date: 4/27/2022 (Label ID 6114) | Tested Date: 5/17/2022 | Sold starting 07/10/2022

The products failed tests for pesticides Pyrethrins and Piperonyl butoxide (PBO). OLCC says it appears that the OLCC licensed lab responsible for testing the products may have incorrectly entered into CTS that the products had “passed” a pesticides test, when in fact the products had “failed.”
The products were sold by recreational marijuana licensed retailers to consumers across the state from June 10, 2022 to January 24, 2023.
The OLCC says more than 1,000 units of the vape cartridges were sold to 29 OLCC retailers. According to Oregon Cannabis Tracking System (CTS), at least 812 units of the two affected products have been sold to consumers since the contaminated cartridges reached the licensed retail market last spring; the retailers still have approximately 240 units on hand according to CTS.
