EHS POSITION…..This is very good news as rodent control products in the hands of unlicensed and untrained consumers do pose a significant risk to children and pets. Too often we at EHS have come across rodenticide thrown in areas accessible to children and/or pets because the homeowner or business owner decided to save money and try and treat themselves. We at EHS fully support any measure that aims to protect the general public and believe that rodent plus pest control should be left in the hands of professionals.
BREAKING NEWS: EPA ANNOUNCES INTENT TO CANCEL CONSUMER RODENTICIDE PRODUCTS
In a special NPMA Closer Look e-mailed to you last Thursday, we indicated that EPA intended to make an announcement regarding the implementation of its rodenticide risk mitigation decision.
This morning, EPA announced that it intends to initiate cancellation proceedings against consumer products that do not comply with the Agency's 2008 risk mitigation decision. The companies that are subject to the cancellation proceedings are referenced in EPA's press release, which can be accessed by clicking http://yosemite.epa.gov/opa/admpress.nsf/1e5ab1124055f3b28525781f0042ed40/5689a230c1490219852578a80053a4b7!OpenDocument
