Syngenta Crop Protection and Syngenta AG Settles Class Action Lawsuit of $100,000
Jan 24 13
Findlay and Ottawa have each received more than $100,000 from the settlement of a class action lawsuit aimed at recovering the costs of filtering a herbicide from drinking water. The case was originally filed in Illinois in 2004 and was expanded to include other states in 2010. The suit, filed against Syngenta Crop Protection of North Carolina and Syngenta AG, was meant to recover filtration expenses caused by the infiltration of atrazine into water supplies. More than 1,000 water systems are sharing in the $105 million settlement. The settlement allows communities to use the money however they wish. Findlay's and Ottawa's share went directly into their water funds.
Baron & Budd Announces $105 Million Settlement in Class Action Litigation Against Syngenta AG and Syngenta Crop Protection, Inc
Oct 26 12
Baron & Budd announced a $105 million settlement on behalf of over 1,000 community water systems that have detected the chemical atrazine in their water supplies. The settlement concludes class action litigation that has been pending for more than eight years against Syngenta AG and Syngenta Crop Protection LLC (Syngenta Crop Protection, Inc.). Atrazine is an agricultural herbicide widely used in the United States --- and particularly in the Midwest --- to control weeds in corn and soybean crops. Once applied, the chemical easily runs off into surface waters and drinking water supplies. As a result, many municipalities and water providers have detected atrazine in their water supplies and spent significant sums to remove it from finished water. The settlement will reimburse those costs to more than 1,000 water providers who serve water to more than 30 million Americans. In 2004, a water provider filed a lawsuit in Illinois state court against Syngenta AG and Syngenta Crop Protection Inc., alleging that Syngenta knew that atrazine would invade surface water such as lakes, rivers and streams but chose to sell the product without consideration for the expense water providers would incur to remove atrazine from water before supplying it to consumers. Then, in 2010, several public drinking water providers filed a similar suit in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Illinois. After extensive discovery and aggressive litigation, the parties reached a settlement on a class-wide basis. The Southern District approved the class settlement on October 23, 2012.
Syngenta Crop Protection Inc. to Pay $102,000 Penalty for Sale or Distribution of Misbranded Pesticides in Nebraska and Missouri
May 8 12
Syngenta Crop Protection Inc. has agreed to pay a $102,000 civil penalty to the United States to settle a series of environmental violations related to the sale or distribution of misbranded pesticides through its facility in Omaha, Neb., and through a farm supply retailer in Savannah, Mo. During a separate inspection in August 2011 at Duncan Agri-Service Inc., in Savannah, Mo., EPA found a bulk tank of Lumax Selective Herbicide, owned by Syngenta, whose label was missing a required warning statement about the required use of personal protective equipment by persons using the pesticide.
The labeling deficiencies related to the two pesticides were in violation of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). The sale or distribution of misbranded or mislabeled pesticides can pose serious risks to human health, plant and animal life, and the environment.
