AzPPO wins another battle against governmental over reach
Recently our lobbyist Courtney LeVinus received an email from one of our members, Dena Berg from Northwest Exterminating in Tucson, concerning an issue which had occurred with the Pima County Health Department. Northwest had performed a thorough cleanout for German Cockroaches in a restaurant. One of the products they used in the clean out was an insecticidal dust formulation. The application was performed according to label and was done legally and professionally. In spite of this the inspector had ordered all dust applied in the attic space to be cleaned up citing FDA code which does not allow Tracking Powder to be used in restaurants.
