(6/12/2006)

The Indonesian Department of Agriculture has ordered the recall from the market of two top-selling mosquito insecticides HIT 2.1A and HIT 17L - both found to contain the dangerous dikloroyos - a known carcinogenic and considered a general health threat to human internal organs.

In issuing the withdrawal order the Government has granted PT Megasari Makmur the company producing the insecticide and its distributors a grace period of two months to effect a complete removal of HIT from store shelves.

According to local press reports, the company producing the mosquito repellent were first ordered to stop producing the spray in 2003. Apparently, the latest order from the Government will see the dangerous product finally removed from circulation.

A check at local markets 4 days after the official announcement from the Department of Agriculture showed that HIT was still being sold freely at local markets with shop keepers saying they had yet to receive any official notification on how to dispose of stocks purchased from local distributors.
