It is strange that it would not give a reason why. I suspect that it has been treated with systemic pesticides, which are taken up into the plant. You will have to consult the nursery from which the plant came to ask them why they would have such a label on an edible plant.


Also, please do not include your personal information to the public. I will remove it this time.
