Pesticide Production

San Francisco, CA: (Nov-26-07) The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) brought charges against Pioneer Chemical Company, a Gardena- based pesticide producer, alleging that the company failed to submit accurate annual pesticide production reports to the agency. The suit claimed that the company was producing Super 60 PYM Foamer, a disinfectant and fungicide for hospital, institutional and industrial use, and not reporting it to the EPA in its annual pesticide production reports. According to the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act, federal law mandates that each producer or repackager must report the registered pesticides and the quantity of such pesticides produced annually. The act regulates the sale, distribution, and use of pesticides within the United States. As part of a settlement reached, the company agreed to pay a $15,500 fine to resolve allegations.
