AddThis Social Bookmark Button

DuPont is in talks with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in an effort to design “the most effective way to implement our recommendation of a voluntary suspension of sale of DuPont Imprelis herbicide, and a product return and refund program.”

The recall and stop sale come after customers complaints and lawsuits have been filed regarding herbicide use that has killed thousands of trees. The EPA conditionally approved Imprelis for sale last October, after the company said it put the chemical through more than 400 trials. Imprelis was approved for sale in all states, except California and New York.

Until the recall comes into effect, DuPont is advising customers, who are mostly professional landscaper and golf course owners, not to use Imprelis near Norway spruce and white pines, Reuters has reported.

DuPont Chief Executive Ellen Kullman has received letters from the EPA, which strongly recommend that the company release thousands of confidential documents on Imprelis safety and effectiveness. The EPA is currently preparing a stop sale order. disclaimer: This article: Complaints, Lawsuits Prompt DuPont to Plan Imprelis Recall, Stop Sales was posted on Friday, August 5th, 2011 at 3:54 pm at and is filed under Toxic Substances Lawsuits.
