Sergeant’s Pet Care Products Inc. and Wellmark International have agreed to phase out the use of the chemical propoxur in pet flea collars.

The announcement Thursday followed the filing of a lawsuit in February by the Natural Resources Defense Council, which has been pushing the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to act on previous petitions that urged the government to ban propoxur in flea-control products. The timing of the lawsuit and the voluntary agreement between EPA and the manufacturers was coincidental, said council health attorney Mae Wu.
