OLCC expands recall of cannabis vape products

Agency says cartridges contain prohibited additives

PORTLAND, Ore. (KTVZ) – The Oregon Liquor and Cannabis Commission said Tuesday it is expanding the recall of cannabis vape products that was initially noticed on January 12th. OLCC investigators have determined that three additional production batches of cannabis vape cartridges appear to contain prohibited additives.

The expanded recall includes vape cartridges that have been sold under the brand name Firefly Extracts or Smoke-Rite Wellness and were manufactured by Hillsboro-based Plank Road Laboratories, Inc., an OLCC licensed marijuana processor. The expanded recall encompasses three new production batches that were made into 10 total product lines. About 7000 units have been sold from these batches and about 500 units were still in the market.

The products do not conform to state standards regarding cannabis additives and therefore should not be sold. Production records indicate that the recalled items contain CBN, an artificially derived cannabinoid and CBC, a synthetic cannabinoid.

Under Oregon law, inhalable products like vape cartridges cannot contain artificially derived cannabinoids. Additionally, the synthetic CBC does not comply with OLCC requirements for non-cannabis additives in inhalable products, and is also prohibited under Oregon law.
