Problematic rat poison to become less potent

Reckitt Benckiser, the maker of d-CON rat poison, plans to stop production of its bait pellets and replace them with products that are expected to be safer for children, pets and wildlife. The move follows years of pressure from the Environmental Protection Agency and is designed to address concerns about accidental and secondary exposure. The new products will be packaged differently, will not contain a neurotoxin and will use an active ingredient with a readily available antidote. KOVR-TV (West Sacramento, Calif.)
