The department earlier had suspended, as an imminent health hazard, home and waterways uses of the more potent liquid forms of 2,4,5-T, without opportunity for an appeal. Monday, the department said it has asked manufacturers and state regulatory agencies to take prompt action to remove all such liquid products from retail shelves. The actions on 2,4,5-T resulted from an announcement Apr. 15 by the Department of Health, Education and Welfare that new studies had confirmed earlier suspicions that the substance may cause birth defects. Pregnant mice injected with 2,4,5-T gave birth to mice with kidney cysts and cleft palates, n the recent tests. The Center for the Study of Responsive Law, headed by consumer advocate Ralph Nader, had charged last week that the agriculture department was delaying its implementation of the Apr. 15, announcement. Secretary of Labor George P. Shultz told a Labor Subcommittee he has found no evidence of a connection between the slaying of Joseph Yablonski and his losing bid for the presi- and I conference.
