Banned Chemicals Found in Swedish Stores, Legal Action Started

Published måndag 30 mars 2009 kl 11.56
Mosquitos may be safe from removed repellents

Swedish health authorities report finding some 100 banned chemical substances on the store shelves in this Nordic nation – and have reported both importers, producers and shop owners to the police.

This includes mosquito and insect repellents,  anti-tick collars for dogs and cats and other pesticides – some banned for the last 18 years.

The authorities admit that they have been lax in following up the cases and that some of the offenders deliberately ignored the bans or hide material from inspectors.

Some Swedish importers claim that they were given guarantees that the substances were not toxic and included only natural substances.
