US firm fined $1.7 million for pesticide violations

The US pesticide producer and distributor, Harrell's (Lakeland, Florida), has agreed to pay the EPA over $1.7 million for selling misbranded products. It is one of the largest ever enforcement cases under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), the Agency points out. Under the agreed settlement, the EPA alleged that Harrell's had violated the FIFRA between 2010 and 2012 by distributing or selling pesticides over 350 times without labels or with labels that were completely illegible. The Agency also accused the company of violating a "stop sale" order and producing large amounts of pesticides at its Sylacauga, Alabama facility before registering with the EPA. Harrell's mainly supplies golf courses and also serves the horticulture sector.
