SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California’s pesticide regulator is suing Whole Foods Market, Inc. over four pesticide products the grocery retailer sells at stores in the state.
The California Department of Pesticide Regulation says the state has not determined the products are safe.
The regulators filed the lawsuit on Monday in Sacramento Superior Court. The suit seeks a court order requiring the grocer to explain why it is selling pesticide products that do not comply with state safety laws.
The products are Natural Pines Pellet Cat Litter; Purely Botanical Cat Flea Spray; Purely Botanical Dog Flea Spray and Enviroman Bugs R Done Bugspray.
Whole Foods did not return an email seeking comment on the suit.
If it is found to have sold unregistered pesticides, the state could issue fines.
