    My lesco rep sent me this link that I can't get to paste. Anyway an article in Reuters says that Dupont may voluntarily recall imprelis and they are to meet with the epa on or before Tuesday. If interested go to Reuters.com

    From the article........this could get interesting

    In a statement on Thursday, DuPont said it is in talks with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on "the most effective way to implement our recommendation of a voluntary suspension of sale of DuPont Imprelis herbicide, and a product return and refund program."

    I'm in NY and Imprelis was never registered here, so I haven't actually seen any of the damage myself. What about everyone else? In light of what we've been hearing in recent weeks, are any chemical distributors still selling the product?

    Yep. They sure are. Or at least a couple of weeks ago. I'd like to name them out-right, but I'm afraid I'd go into some sort of law-suit or something.

    I have been told that the fines will be with a lot of zeros behind them.
