Scotts MiracleGro fined for adding insecticide to Wild Bird Seed

This is the last package of Scotts bird seed I will ever buy.

It's troubling to learn that the company laced wild bird seed with the toxic pesticides Storcide II and Actellic 5E to protect their bottom line. This action not only violated the law but also good sense. You have to ask, who makes these bonehead decisions?

I first learned of this from Margaret Roach's excellent blog A Way To Garden and felt compelled to make a post of my own. Here is a link to more info on the case.

Isn't it horrifying that a company would endanger wildlife just to meet financial goals? I'm agree--there will not be any Scotts' products coming into our home. Just found your site, and looking forward to reading more!
