An embargo is a hold on specific product(s) that were found to:
1) exceed the allowable testing thresholds set forth under our rules;
2) contain analytes that could be poisonous, harmful to health or otherwise unsuitable or unsafe for human consumption;
3) be in violation of applicable laws, rules or regulations.
Licensed businesses cannot engage in commercial activity (sale, donation, transfer, etc.) with embargoed products without the OMMA's permission. If your business is in possession of an embargoed product, you cannot send it to a waste facility (or other commercial license). You must await further instructions from the OMMA.
