Read The Epoch Times article by national news reporter Allan Stein with contributions from NMCL owner Jim Shepherd and legal counsel Warren Norred, offering detailed insight into the company’s lawsuit against the EPA.
Needed clarification in the article
This article contains the following quote mistakenly attributed to New Millennium Concepts but was taken from one of our dealer’s websites berkeyfilters.com which was targeted by the EPA with a stop-sale order. “Due to an EPA stop-sale order, Black Berkey Filter Elements are currently unavailable. As a result, all systems which include Black Berkey Filter Elements (Travel Berkey, Big Berkey, etc.) are unavailable as well.”
However, many authorized Berkey dealers still have inventory of Berkey Water Systems (Travel Berkey, Big Berkey, Royal Berkey, etc.) and Black Berkey Elements available for sale. Consumers looking to purchase Berkey products can search the web using the search term “authorized berkey water filters dealers” and select an authorized Berkey dealers website from the results from which to make a purchase. Additionally, you can use the resources found on our berkeywater.com support website (Click here: Find Authorized Berkey® Dealers) for assistance in finding an authorized dealer, as well as help guides in identifying counterfeit Berkey products.
About the Lawsuit
New Millennium Concepts, Ltd. (“NMCL”) and the James B. Shepherd Trust, the brand owner of Berkey Water Systems, filed a lawsuit against the EPA (United States Environmental Protection Agency) in August of 2023 seeking to stop its unjustified treatment and perceived persecution of Berkey Water Filters based on the EPA’s decision this year to treat Berkey Water Filters as though they are pesticides, rather than water filters. To learn more about the lawsuit, you can read the full press release here.
Spread the Word—Share and Repost!
We encourage you to share or repost this article and our original press release to raise awareness about the targeted and abusive conduct of the EPA against Berkey.
If an injunction is not granted and Berkey is not allowed to resume regular manufacturing and distribution operations, people around the world may no longer have the opportunity to experience the benefits of Berkey’s unique, economical and time-proven water filter systems that have improved lives for over 20 years by providing clean drinking water from freshwater sources.
Moreover, if the EPA can get away with these extreme actions in classifying Berkey as a pesticide and issuing orders that effectively stop the flow of Berkey® products…it begs the question: which other water filter company or other beneficial products are next on their list to interfere with? Something needs to be done to reign in the EPA’s abuse of power and hold them accountable.
So, in addition to sharing our posts, please take a moment to write or call your local representatives, congressmen and senators and ask for their help in reigning in the EPA specifically regarding their attack in classifying Berkey® water filters as pesticides, and lifting their stop-sale orders that are preventing the manufacture and distribution of Berkey® products.
We appreciate your support!
