Gatineau Medical Marijuana Company Recalls Tainted Products, Resumes Sales

A Gatineau medical marijuana grower has recalled products after the discovery of trace amounts of an unapproved pesticide.

The Hydropothecary Corp. announced the recall Tuesday morning, saying it’s still searching for the source of the contamination at its facility in Masson-Angers, about 40 kilometres northeast of Ottawa.

In the meantime, sales of most Hydropothecary products will resume. The company voluntarily stopped all sales two weeks ago after a Health Canada spot check found the pesticide myclobutanil on plant samples.

Hydropothecary becomes the fourth medical marijuana producer in the past six months to recall products after testing showed the presence of myclobutanil and other pesticides not approved for use on cannabis.
