DuPont settles with US EPA over Imprelis

DuPont has agreed to pay a civil penalty of over $1.8 million to settle the US EPA's allegations that sales of the turf herbicide, Imprelis (aminocyclopyrachlor), violated federal pesticide law and that it had failed to submit reports about potential adverse effects. The EPA filed a consent agreement and final order on September 15th to resolve administrative proceedings against DuPont. It alleges that the company violated the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) by selling or distributing a misbranded product in 2010 and 2011 and failing to timely submit field study reports indicating adverse effects to non-target plants. The registration of Imprelis expired on September 14th.
