Additional information:
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports the following Medical Cannabis Products are subject to this recall:

  • On December 28, 2016, Organigram Inc. initiated a Type III recall after five (5) lots of Medical Cannabis Products tested positive for the presence of low levels of Myclobutanil and/or Bifenazate. These pesticides are not found in the thirteen pesticides authorized for use on Cannabis Plants under Canada’s Pest Control Products Act. These two pesticides, however, are found in pest control products that are approved for use in food production.

As a precautionary measure, Organigram Inc. expanded the voluntary Type II recall to include all Marijuana and Cannabis Oil Products produced between February 1 and December 16, 2016 for a total of 74 batch/lots,  with the following lot numbers:
