US EPA advances carbofuran cancellation

The US EPA has proposed the cancellation of all tolerances for the carbamate insecticide/nematicide, carbofuran, because of concerns that dietary risks exceed safety standards. The unusual move provides “the most direct and timely means to realise protection of children from dietary risks”, the EPA says. It will continue with the planned phase-out of the pesticide following the 2006 determination that all uses were ineligible for re-registration ( Agrow No 501, p 17).
