James V. Aidala, "Make My Day! - Registrant Gets Court To Order EPA To Cancel Their Product," Pesticide and Chemical Policy, February 4, 2011.

Reckitt Benckiser is a manufacturer of a variety of household cleaning and pesticide products, including rodenticides, sold widely under the D-Con brand. In recent years Reckitt Benckiser has formulated rodenticide products using what is known as a “second-generation” anti-coagulant, brodifacoum. The term second-generation refers to the lack of resistance in rodents, which has developed in some cases to earlier, “first-generation” anti-coagulant products, such as warfarin.
