Imprelis lawsuit complaint

The Imprelis lawsuit complaint explains that the various property owners contracted with different lawn care companies in their respective states throughout the spring of 2011. Despite the fact that all of the lawn care companies had reportedly applied Imprelis in accordance with DuPont’s instructions and directions, the plaintiffs in this case all suffered significant, irreversible damage to their trees, lawns and gardens, and in some cases, it only took one application of Imprelis to allegedly cause such devastation. Specific signs of alleged Imprelis tree damage and death that the plaintiffs’ plant life exhibited included browning, curling, twisting, stunted leaf growth and stem die-back.

Alleged Imprelis Tree Damage

According to court documents, DuPont initially marketed Imprelis as having significant advantages over other herbicides on the market and claimed that Imprelis was the “most advanced turf herbicide in over 40 years.” Despite such claims, however, landscape professionals have described Imprelis, which is four times more powerful than Agent Orange, as the industry’s “Hurricane Katrina.” Many industry professionals also contend that the full extent of the alleged damage DuPont’s Imprelis has caused is only just beginning to be evident. The complaint goes on to point out that, even after consumers began to report Imprelis tree damage to DuPont, the company denied that Imprelis herbicide was dangerous and tried to attribute the tree death to other factors, such as improper application of the herbicide.

EPA Orders DuPont to Stop Selling Imprelis

As mentioned in the Imprelis lawsuit, nationwide consumer reports of Imprelis tree damage began accumulating after the herbicide’s introduction in October 2010, by June 2011, the EPA initiated its own investigation into the alleged problems with Imprelis. Within a few months, the EPA had uncovered sufficient evidence that Imprelis was responsible for seriously damaging or killing thousands of trees and, as a result, ordered DuPont to immediately stop selling and distributing Imprelis herbicide. At that time, the EPA has received more than 7,000 reports of Imprelis tree damage from consumers nationwide.
