Liphatech pays record US fine for FIFRA violations

The US company, Liphatech (Milwaukee, Wisconsin), has paid a $738,000 civil penalty to the EPA for advertising its rodenticide, Rozol Prairie Dog Bait (chlorophacinone), without identifying it as a "restricted use" pesticide and for making unapproved claims. It is the largest penalty ever imposed by an administration law judge for Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) violations, the EPA notes. The company was found liable for over 2,100 FIFRA violations between 2007 and 2008. The unapproved claims undermined the instructions on the label and overstated the efficacy and safety of the pesticide, the EPA points out.
