Liphatech Responds to Statements Made in EPA Release

Supplier News

The response was to an EPA release which reiterated the agency's intentions previously announced in 2008 under the “Final Risk Mitigation Decision for Ten Rodenticides (RMD)."

| June 9, 2011

Editor’s note: Rodenticide manufacturer Liphatech issued the following statement in response to a release from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency which reiterated its intentions previously announced in 2008 under the “Final Risk Mitigation Decision for Ten Rodenticides (RMD)."

In the release, the EPA announced its plan to initiate cancellation proceedings of specific rodenticides that did not comply with the new regulation effective as of June 4, 2011. Four rodenticide manufacturers, including Liphatech, were referenced in the statement. The EPA actions referenced in the release deal solely with the residential consumer market. Liphatech does not sell rodenticides directly into this market. The products mentioned, Generation and Maki, are primarily sold into the Professional Pest Control (PCO) market.

“During the last several months, Liphatech, through considerable effort and expense, has made all the necessary label and registration changes to comply with the new EPA regulations that went into effect on June 4, 2011 for the pest control and animal health markets,” said Thomas Schmit, regulatory manager, Liphatech. Products sold by Liphatech in these markets include Generation, FirstStrike, BlueMax, and Maki for the pest control market and Hombre, Boothill, and FastDraw for animal health. These products remain available to professional applicators and animal production facilities in the battle against the harmful impact of rodents including disease, damage to structures, and reductions in our food supply.

As always, Liphatech will continue to work with the EPA to ensure products sold comply with safety regulations.
