Saturday, February 17, 2018, founded by Jeff Bezos — the current owner of the Washington Post — has been caught committing nearly 4,000 counts of selling illegal pesticides. The EPA spearheaded the investigation that revealed Amazon to be profiting from the sales of toxic, deadly substances that directly threaten the health of children. No criminal charges have yet been filed against the poison-pushing e-commerce giant, but Amazon was forced to pay $1.2 million to the EPA as part of the settlement (see below).

In a Feb. 15, 2018 announcement, the EPA describes a sting operation that caught Amazon selling illegal pesticides on multiple occasions, in clear violation of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act. From the announcement:

In late 2014, EPA began investigating online pesticide product distributions and sales through several internet retail sites including Amazon and third-party sellers that used Amazon’s online marketing platform. In March 2015, EPA inspected an Amazon facility in Lexington, Kentucky, and inspectors in EPA’s Region 10 office successfully ordered illegal pesticides from In August 2015, EPA issued a FIFRA Stop Sale, Use, or Removal Order against Amazon to prohibit the sale of the illegal pesticide products that can easily be mistaken for black-board or side-walk chalk, especially by children.

EPA issued another Stop Sale Order against Amazon in January 2016 after discovering that certain unregistered or misbranded insecticide bait products were being offered for sale on After receiving the stop sale orders, Amazon immediately removed the products from the marketplace, prohibited foreign sellers from selling pesticides, and cooperated with EPA during its subsequent investigation.

Keep in mind that any other company caught selling illegal pesticides would likely see its executives arrested and its inventory confiscated at gunpoint. But, with its CIA data contracts and Bezos’ ownership of the propaganda fake news publisher The Washington Post, was merely asked to cover the EPA’s “administrative costs.”
