MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- At least five lawsuits have been filed in Minnesota over a lawn herbicide that's caused damage to trees.
DuPont makes the herbicide Imprelis. The Environmental Protection Agency ordered DuPont to stop selling and distributing the herbicide a week after the company voluntarily suspended its sale on Aug. 4. DuPont says it will begin a product recall and refund program.
Minneapolis attorney Stephen Foley has filed a lawsuit in federal court on behalf of one Wayzata resident who claims that at least 10 spruce trees in his yard were damaged after Imprelis was applied to his lawn.
The Star Tribune says Imprelis was sold only to commercial applicators and wasn't available over the counter.
