Scotts Miracle-Gro Products Get Yanked

  • April 28, 2008
The world's largest lawn and garden products company just got an unseasonable setback: The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company and the Environmental Protection Agency issued a nationwide recall of the company's Miracle-Gro Shake 'n' Feed with Weed Preventer All Purpose Plant Food, right at the height of the spring gardening season. (A weed control product used by Scotts Lawn Service is also included in the recall.)

No specific reason for the recall was given.

The product, which accounts for about $10 million in sales per year, is sold primarily through home center stores, mass merchant retailers, supermarkets, hardware stores and independent lawn and garden centers. While the company says the product is similar to other products is sells and that it believes it isn't harmful, consumers are being advised not to use the product, or dispose of it down a drain.--Sarah Mahoney
