I spoke with a Hartz Consumer relations person today :(

Good afternoon,

I am very thankful to have found your site. For one, I simply disagree with the over the counter sales of pesticides, especially ones directed at pets. I do not purchase the product, but as a cat and dog parent and advocate, I want to see the right and safe methode of care taken place and believe it is the companies responsiblilty to properly educate consumers and Remove unsafe products.

Anyway, I noticed that my local Walmart still had the product in question on the shelf so I questioned why. I was given a number to Harts Mountain and spoke breifly with a relations agent.

She told me that Hartz is in the process of disseminating the incorrect information which has been published. “Incorrect”? I advised her the information I had came from the EPA and she was unconcerned and again stated they are in the process of disseminating that information. I questioned the “recovery process” which she told me was only to be shipment of relabled product after the current inventory was sold. She made it clear that Hartz’ stance on this is very different than the EPA’s. This seems to me a complete disconcern for the law or for the pets that may be exposed to this.

Seems odd to me, a person can not go into a pet store and purchase a low protein food without a prescription, but you can walk out of that same store with a load of pesticides to douse your pet without question.

The EPA assured me they have the authority to enforce their rulings, I just hope they do.

Thank you for the opportunity to rant. And if you get a chance could you perhaps let me know of others experiences with talking to Hartz directly?

Thank you again,
Fawn
