    EPA Investigating Flea, Tick Meds
    Published : Wednesday, 17 Jun 2009, 7:39 PM CDT

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is investigating the pesticides used in pet flea and tick control medications after receiving reports about dangerous side effects.

    According to the agencies Web site, the investigation mainly includes spot-on pesticide products, which are generally sold in tubes or vials and are usually applied between a pet’s shoulders.

    While the EPA said these products can be useful for treating and protecting people and their pets from fleas and ticks that can transmit disease, the agency now recommends precaution. People should watch their pets closely for any adverse reactions.

    Pet owners across the country have reported side effects including skin irritation, seizures and death, the EPA Web site states.

    A list of more than 200 brands of spot-on pesticides included in the investigation is available at http://www.epa.gov/opp00001/health/prodname-reg.pdf .

    I drank it... According to the EPA, it will only kill me if I had put a drop between my shoulders
