Shell chemical fallout

For obvious reasons, “SHELLTOX”, is not a brand name Shell would adopt these days. The “flykiller” was launched in the USA in the late 20’s. Aptly named, it contained a mixture of toxic chemicals deadly to flies and humans. An indiscriminate killer.

Shell Chemical also had to take its “No-Pest-Strip” off the market… the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency was finding hundreds of other cases of poisoning by DDVP–the cancer-causing stuff in Shell’s strip that kills pests . . . and some people.

U.S. courts have ruled that Shell Oil Co. is also responsible for cleaning up three decades worth of deadly pesticide pollution at Rocky Mountain Arsenal

Shell Oil Co. marketed ‘Shell SU 2000?, at the same time Shell marketed that ‘other’ failed scientific formula – Formula Shell.

Like Formula Shell, it was unceremoniously pulled from the gasoline market… and its sister non-profit websites,,,,,, and are owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia feature.
