US company fined for FIFRA violation

The US agrochemical company, Quest Products (Linwood, Kansas), has agreed to pay a civil penalty of $88,533 related to the sale or distribution of unregistered or misbranded pesticides. The settlement covers the sale of Quest's product, Reliant Systemic Fungicide (mono- and di-potassium salts of phosphorous acid). When it was registered in March 2012, Quest claimed that it would be using a previously approved source of active ingredient, the EPA points out. However, an inspection of Quest's facilities in August 2013 by the Kansas Department of Agriculture found that the company had contracted several toll manufacturers to produce an unregistered product in violation of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act. Quest subsequently submitted an amended registration application in September 2013 and it was approved by the EPA in March 2014.
