The Environmental Protection Agency has ordered Scotts to stop selling some of its garden pesticides. The EPA says Scotts "Miracle Gro Shake 'N Feed All Purpose Plant Food Plus Weed Preventer" and "Garden Weed Preventer Plus Plant Food" are unlicensed, illegal pesticides.

Scotts has agreed to take them off store shelves.

The EPA says it will test the pesticides to see if they pose a risk to users or the environment.

Anyone with these products should call Scotts or the EPA. Visit the EPA's web site for more information.
