Federal Charges Filed Against FL Pest Control Company

January 19, 2016 | ABC News WPBF

PALM CITY, Fla. —  Federal charges have been filed against a pest control company after a local boy was poisoned.

Last August, Sunland Pest Control fumigated a Palm City home.

Shortly after, the company said it was safe for the family to return.  However, Peyton McCaughey suffered brain damage.

Sunland is being charged with two federal crimes, including using a restricted pesticide inconsistent with its labeling and false statement.

Count one carries a maximum of one year in prison.

Count two carries a maximum of five years in prison.

The state revoked the company’s license last fall.
