Pesticide News Story: EPA to Hold Public Webinar on Its Evaluation of Pet Spot-On Products
For Release: March 11, 2010
On Wednesday, March 17, 2010, from 4:00 pm – 6:00 p.m., ET, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will hold a public meeting via Webinar, entitled EPA’s Evaluation of Pet Spot-On Products: Analysis and Mitigation Plan. Last spring, following a significant increase in incident reports associated with pet spot-on products in 2008, EPA received additional information from the pet spot-on pesticide registrants and conducted an intensive evaluation of those incidents and products. During the Webinar, the public will have an opportunity to ask questions about EPA’s findings and plans to protect pets. The Webinar is free and no preregistration is necessary to join the conference.
