Info sought on possibly toxic flea collars

From the National Resources Defense Council

"EPA is in the process of determining whether to ban the cancer-causing pesticide propoxur in pet products like flea and tick collars – and right now they’re asking for public input. Comments are due Friday, July 15

They need to hear from the public that we want products that are safe for our small children, our pets and our families – not toxic.

NRDC scientist Miriam Rotkin-Ellman blogs on why we need concerned people everywhere to weigh in – and provides detailed instructions for how to do so – here:
