In light of recent news and misconceptions about Seresto collars, we wanted to assure you of their safety and approval by the EPA. Elanco CEO Jeff Simmons appeared before the House of Representatives Subcommittee on Economic and Consumer Policy on Wednesday, June 15, to share the facts about Seresto. A resulting USA Today article suggested the product should be removed from the market.
Importantly, there is no evidence in the scientific evaluation conducted for registration purposes or in the regularly reviewed pharmacovigilance data to suggest a recall of Seresto is warranted, nor has one been requested, or even suggested, by any regulatory agency.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is the regulatory body that has jurisdiction over the recall of pesticide products like Seresto. Elanco continues to unequivocally stand behind the safety profile of Seresto. It remains available to consumers in the United States and more than 80 countries around the world as an effective way to protect pets against fleas and ticks that can negatively impact quality of life and even transmit deadly disease.
