Complicated. Apparently Scotts Miracle Gro applied toxic pesticides to aid with storage of bird seed.  Unfortunately the pesticides were toxic to  birds and fish.  Big fine.  Article doesn't state which bird seeds.  "

As a result, EPA issued more than 40 Stop Sale, Use or Removal Orders to Scotts to address more than 100 pesticide products.

In addition to the $6 million civil penalty, Scotts will complete environmental projects, valued at $2 million, to acquire, restore and protect 300 acres of land to prevent runoff of agricultural chemicals into nearby waterways

Looks like Scotts brand is "Morning Song".  I don't know if they sell/sold under other labels.

Other brands sold by Scotts:  Country PrideMorning SongScotts Songbird Selections, and Scotts Wild Bird Food

I wonder if I've been poisoning birds when I thought I was helping them.  I bet I did.  I don't recall those brands, but with relabeling, it's hard to say what we've bought.  If so, I feel bad about that.

I nominate Scotts for the 2012 Eco-cide trophy.

I'm with you, Ruth. Name it for what it is. I also like your artwork.
