Dow Ordered to Pay $2 Million Penalty for Misleading Advertising
At the end of 2003, a subsidiary of Dow Chemical Co. was ordered to pay a $2 million penalty for misleading advertising related to its pesticides. The state of New York ordered the company to pay the penalty for making illegal safety claims, when in fact the pesticides contained dioxin, a chemical known to cause cancer in humans. Because of Dow’s mismarketing of the pesticides, consumers were not taking proper measures to protect themselves from exposure, according to the New York Attorney General.
