The Oregon Liquor Control Commission has issued its first recall of recreational marijuana.

The OLCC says samples of Blue Magoo marijuana contained a level of pesticide residue that exceeds the state limit.

The Capital Press reports the marijuana was grown by Emerald Wave Estate and sold at Buds 4 U in Mapleton, a community 45 miles west of Eugene. The OLCC said people who bought the pot should dispose of it or return it to the retailer.

OLCC spokesman Mark Pettinger says the retailer noticed the failed pesticide reading in the state's Cannabis Tracking System on March 10 and immediately notified the agency.

He says the shop sold 82.3 grams of Blue Magoo to 31 customers between March 8 and March 10. Nine pounds remain on "administrative hold."

The recalled pot was grown by Emerald Wave Estate, based in Creswell, Ore., the Capital Press reports.

The affected marijuana should bear a label that includes one of the following OLCC License numbers:

1A4010300005B05000000772 – product name: Blue Magoo
