EPA Acts to Address Carbofuran Residues in Food
EPA Moves to Ban Carbofuran PesticideDue to considerable risks associated with the pesticide carbofuran in food and drinking water, EPA is revoking the regulations that allow carbofuran residues in food. Even though carbofuran is used on a small percentage of the U.S. food supply and therefore the likelihood of exposure through food is low, EPA has identified risks that that do not meet our rigorous food safety standards. EPA is taking the necessary steps to address these risks to ensure we have the safest food supply possible.
In addition, EPA is proceeding on the path toward cancellation of the pesticide registration, which will address the risks to pesticide applicators and birds in treated fields.
