ORGANIGRAM – Recall of Organic Cannabis (Marijuana) Due to Presence of Pesticides

by | Wednesday, January 25, 2017

Organigram Inc. is a supplier of certified organic cannabis (marijuana) based in Moncton, New Brunswick. The company promotes itself as offering organic cannabis that is free of harmful chemical pesticides.

On December 28, 2016, there was a recall of its products after five lots of cannabis tested positive for the presence of myclobutanil and/or bifenazate. These are pesticides that are not authorized for use on cannabis plants under the Pest Control Products Act.

On January 9, 2017, a second recall occurred after further testing revealed the presence of myclobutanil and/or bifenazate in Organigram’s products. The levels of pesticides detected in the cannabis were higher than is allowed in consumer products. This type of recall, Type II, concerns products which, after exposure or use, may cause adverse health consequences.

After the second recall, Organigram expanded the recall to include all cannabis and/or marijuana (either dried or in oil form) products produced between February 1, 2016 and December 16, 2016.

Health Canada has issued an alert advising consumers and users of the potential contamination and possible harmful health consequences associated with the cannabis products made by Organigram (http://healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall-alert-rappel-avis/hc-sc/2017/61750r-eng.php).

Wagners is currently investigating a class action relating to Organigram’s recalled cannabis and marijuana products. If you or a loved one has purchased or consumed organic cannabis products produced by Organigram, you are welcome to contact us, free of charge, to discuss your situation.

I can't speak highly enough about the lawyers at Wagners who represented me for injuries from not one but two motor vehicle accidents. They were very professional and approachable. I was kept informed of all steps in the process and all of my inquiries were responded to and dealt with very quickly. The lawyers are knowledgeable and showed great empathy for what I was going through. I would recommend this firm to anyone!
