The state of Oregon has issued its first ever recall of recreational marijuana.

The state’s Liquor Control Commission, which oversees the industry, issued the recall after testing determined certain batches of pot, including a product labeled Blue Magoo, contained pesticide levels that exceeded the state limit.

The possible health impact of consuming marijuana products with unapproved pesticide residues is unknown, according to a news release from the control board.
