Today the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that BASF Corporation (BASF) has agreed to pay $5,200 for importing nearly 20,000 lbs of an improperly labeled wood preservative in violation of the Federal Insecticide Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). BASF is a large international chemical company.

"It is important that shipments have the required labels because they have information about the product's environmental and human toxicity, what to do in case of an accidental exposure and how to safely and effectively use and handle the pesticide," said Scott Downey, EPA's Pesticide and Toxics Unit Manager in Seattle.
