    What brainy person put permethrin in the solution? Permethrin is toxic to cats.

    Humans shouldn't be handling the stuff either.

    Maybe it's good at killing fleas?

    from my experience with this stuff is it does not work - so they have improved it to kill the fleas food hence killing the flea!

    joking aside - you would think this was better advertised (cannot think of a better word for informing the public than advertised! )

    If you have Facebook or Twitter, share and spread the word.

    While I'm pleased about this being recalled, I'm confused about why it's happening? Many flea treatments contain permethrin, have done for donkeys years.

    I agree it's awful, but what's changed?
