Section 8: How should I review labeling claims?

Key Points

  • A pesticide is misbranded if its labeling bears any statement, design, or graphic representation that is false or misleading.
  • Product names must not constitute false and misleading claims.
  • Efficacy–related claims must not be false or misleading.
  • Claims about a product's appropriateness for use on organic sites must not be false or misleading.
  • If a claim is not addressed in the Label Review Manual, the label reviewer should consult the OPP Label Committee.
