Pesticide News Story: Three New Questions and Answers on Label Consistency Posted
For Release: July 26, 2012
The EPA's Pesticide Labeling Consistency Committee has posted on its Web page answers to three new questions:
- using the term "resists pests" as an advertising claim,
- using foreign language on labeling, and
- placing directions for use inside the box of a small package.
The EPA strives to ensure that pesticide labels convey information clearly. Sometimes, however, the complex nature of the information gives rise to questions. The agency’s Labeling Consistency Committee investigates the issues raised and provides answers. The three new Qs and As add to more than 250 already existing on generic labeling policy issues, which can be a useful resource for determining acceptable labeling practices. http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/regulating/labels/labels_faq/lr_faq_1.html
