A proposed settlement has been reached in the above-referenced class action lawsuit.  The lawsuit alleges that UIC labeled its Spectracide® Concentrate herbicide Products as making more solution than the Products were capable of making when mixed for certain weed control purposes. UIC denies the allegations and any wrongdoing. To avoid the expense and distraction of litigation, the parties have reached a settlement. 

Detailed information about the Settlement Agreement is available in the frequently asked questions and court documents section of this website.
