Reckitt Benckiser has requested a hearing to contest the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) proposal to cancel the registration of 12 rodenticide products the company markets. Additional details about EPA’s action appear in Issue 442 of this Update. Contending that the cancellation would ban from the consumer market “some of the most effective and affordable household-use rodenticide products available,” the company seeks to overturn the proposed cancellations. It also seeks approval of two additional product applications that EPA had proposed denying. According to the company, EPA’s actions would leave “consumers to choose between less effective means of rodent control, products that contain highly toxic active ingredients for which there are no antidotes, or costly pest control professionals.”
