Bayer: Advantage Pet Products

Edited: Apr 08, 2017

Product Information:

Foreign-labeled flea and tick products are being unlawfully imported into the U.S. and packaged in retail cartons that look like legitimate EPA-registered pesticides under the trade names "Advantage".

Affected Product: Advantage 10 for Dogs (EPA Reg. No. 11556-117).

Inside the cartons are applicators that have been labeled and packaged for sale in overseas markets.

Since the directions on the retail carton and the supplemental leaflet are identical between the legitimate product and the counterfeit product, check the language that is printed on the product tubes. The legitimate Advantage products all contain product tubes that are printed in English. The most obvious sign of a counterfeit product is that the product tubes are printed in a foreign language (most likely French or German).

Legitimate product tubes will include the EPA Registration Number, the signal word WARNING, and the child hazard warning (Keep Out of Reach of Children). Counterfeit product tubes may lack this information.

Legitimate product tubes will also include a reference statement that refers users to the main labeling for directions for use and will include the manufacturing company's name (Bayer). Counterfeit product tubes may lack this information.

Legitimate product tubes will contain an active ingredient statement that agrees with the active ingredient statement on the retail carton (9.1% imidacloprid). A counterfeit product may have an active ingredient statement that differs (such as 10%).

All text should be in English only.
