The Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) has issued a notice of statewide detainment and stop sale and removal order for a pesticide product manufactured by McLaughlin Gormley King Company after finding the presence of two pesticide active ingredients not listed on the product label, EPA Registration No. 1021-2560, according to a press release.

The label lists the active ingredient pyrethrins. ODA's investigation of the product and laboratory analysis found the presence of piperonyl butoxide and MGK-264, which are not listed on the label.

The order calls for the product manufacturer to immediately cease all sales, offers of sale or other distribution in Oregon. In addition, ODA is asking growers who may have purchased the product not to use it. Use of Evergreen Pyrethrum Concentrate could cause cannabis growers to fail pesticide testing requirements.
