National Sorghum Producers Call on EPA to Postpone Chlorpyrifos Meeting

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 16:06:48 CDT

National Sorghum Producers Call on EPA to Postpone Chlorpyrifos Meeting National Sorghum Producers and more than 40 other agricultural associations called on the Environmental Protection Agency to postpone a three-day meeting next week (April 19-21, 2016) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act Scientific Advisory Panel (FIFRA SAP) scheduled to review potential risks to human health from chlorpyrifos, the active ingredient in Lorsban.



According to a Federal Register notice, the meeting will review if study data, based primarily on studies by Columbia University, are sufficient for a new model of determining potential health risks to humans.



In the letter, the groups called the meeting a rushed attempt to “fundamentally alter its process for evaluating potential risk and regulation of pesticides.”



Read the full letter sent to EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy.
