Pesticide News Story: Consumer Alert: Insecticide Voluntary Recovery Effort Underway - Consumers Urged to Follow Manufacturer's Instructions for Disposal and Full Value Replacement

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been informed by S.C. Johnson Company that they are recovering two specific lots of Raid® Flying Insect Killer due to their unacceptable performance. While there have been no reports of injury or damage to property, tests show that the aerosol cans may not spray an appropriate amount of the insecticide and therefore reduce its effectiveness. The company also believes that some cans in question could develop leaks over time. EPA encourages consumers who have aerosol cans of Raid® Flying Insect Killer (EPA Registration Number 4822-513) marked with lot numbers 225 or 226 on the bottom of the can to call the S.C. Johnson Hotline at 1-800-294-3632 for disposal instructions and full value replacement coupons. All other lot numbers of Raid® Flying Insect Killer and other Raid® products are not involved in this voluntary recovery, and consumers may continue using those products according to label instructions.

EPA applauds S.C. Johnson for its product stewardship in this voluntary recovery effort.
