EPA fines Iogear over 'germ-free' claims
At issue are mice and other peripherals.
The EPA fined the company for what it called "unsubstantiated public health claims regarding unregistered products, and their ability to control germs and pathogens"--an offense that the agency says violates the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act. Engadget says the company no longer makes the claims about the products'. Apparently the only sure-fire way to make your mouse squeaky-clean is old-fashioned .
