Scotts Fined! Scotts pleaded guilty in February 2012 to illegally applying insecticides to its wild bird food products that are toxic to birds, falsifying pesticide registration documents, distributing pesticides with misleading & unapproved labels, and distributing unregistered pesticides. Scotts Miracle Gro will pay $12.5 Million in Criminal Fine & Civil Penalties for violations of Federal Pesticide Laws! This is the largest criminal penalty under FIFRA to date.
As the worlds largest marketer of residential use pesticides, Scotts has a special obligation to make certain that it observes the laws governing the sale & use of its products. For having failed to do so, Scotts has been sentenced to pay the largest fine in the history of FIFRA enforcement," said Ignacia S. Moreno, assistant attorney general for the Environment & Natural Resources Division of the Department of Justice. pinterest.com/pin/92675704803189640/ yosemite.epa.gov/opa/admpress.nsf/d0cf6618
