Intelligent Global Pooling Systems (iGPS), operator of the world’s first pallet rental service to provide all-plastic pallets with embedded RFID tags, announced this week that it has filed suit against the National Wooden Pallet and Container Association (NWPCA) and its president for “false, malicious and defamatory statements suggesting that iGPS pallets may be the cause of recent butter contamination in the Dallas area.”  iGPS is headquartered in Orlando, Fla., and operates its National Sales and Innovation Center in Northwest Arkansas.

The NWPCA said in a statement released to Modern that the “NWPCA is comfortable that the data distributed in our recent news release is supportable and founded on credible sources of evidence. We believe the lawsuit by Intelligent Global Pooling Systems (iGPS) is a distraction meant to draw attention from the core of what NWPCA is advocating, which is to have a zero tolerance for all polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) flame retardants in the food and pharmaceutical industries.”
