Holland Cannabis is facing a recall and the possible loss of its license after its products may have exposed consumers to the fungicide myclobutanil.

The state’s Cannabis Control Board last Friday issued a notice halting all sales of Holland Cannabis flower and pre-rolls so it could investigate further. The CCB is recalling all strains but that doesn’t mean all strains were affected.

According to Seven Days, Holland’s license had been previously suspended after a consumer was sickened after smoking a product that contained fungicide. The company was placed under a corrective action plan. But after its second offense, Holland Cannabis could be facing a fine of up to $20,000 and the loss of its cannabis cultivation license.

Cannabis Control Board chair James Pepper told the publication that some pesticides are OK for human exposure but that it’s well known that myclobutanil is not one of them.

"So there's no excuse here. And the fact that they've been through this once before leaves very little room for any sort of leniency,” he said.
