Vermont Recalls Holland Cannabis Co. Products Due to Fungicide Exposure

Vermont officials have issued a recall for all cannabis products from Holland Cannabis Co. due to potential exposure to the fungicide myclobutanil.

Full story after the jump.

Vermont regulators last week issued a recall for all Holland Cannabis Co. products due to potential exposure to the fungicide myclobutanil. While the Cannabis Control Board (CCB) is so far unaware of any adverse health effects related to the products, it is calling on retailers to quarantine the products and for customers to return them.

Holland has already had its license suspended and was currently operating under a “corrective action plan” after someone was made ill last year after smoking cannabis tainted with the fungicide, according to a Seven Days report. Holland now faces a $20,000 fine and could have its cultivation license revoked for its second offense.

CCB Chair James Pepper told Seven Days that the case is still being investigated.

“Some pesticides are OK for human consumption. This one is a very known toxic one. 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.” — Pepper to Seven Days

The CCB is aware of at least six dispensaries carrying Holland flower and prerolls but warned that some retailers may have older Holland products that could also be contaminated. The agency notes that while the recall affects all strains, it does not mean that all strains are contaminated.
