US: WOMAN ARRESTED FOR SELLING ILLEGAL PESTICIDE, CLAIMING IT PROTECTS AGAINST CORONAVIRUS

A news release from US Immigration and Customs Enforcement on 14 April advised that, in Georgia, Rong Sun, aka Vicky Sun, made her initial appearance on federal criminal charges for illegally importing and selling an unregistered pesticide, and mailing a prohibited article, as part of an online scheme offering the product for sale on E-bay while claiming, without any legal basis, the illegal pesticide would protect persons from coronavirus.  Federal law regulates the production, sale, distribution and use of pesticides. Pesticides are also required to be registered with the EPA, and the product offered by the defendant was not registered, and it is illegal to distribute or sell unregistered pesticides. In addition, Sun allegedly illegally imported the pesticide from Japan via the US Postal Service.
