EPA orders Arizona pool company to stop selling unregistered pesticide
PHOENIX – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has ordered an Arizona pool chemical company to stop selling an improperly registered pesticide.
State inspectors discovered the unregistered pesticide used to disinfect pools from bacteria and algae during an August inspection of the Phoenix warehouse of Pool Water Products Inc.
Under federal law, companies must provide formulation and production data to EPA in registering a pesticide product.
This ensures the efficiency and the integrity of products for consumers.
Pool Water Products was selling and distributing an unregistered version of the jumbo chlorinating tablets product made in China that hasn’t been evaluated by the EPA.
